Every year the OCDSB holds a parent conference. This year it was on November 3. Among the many workshops was one on the Provincial Ministry of Education Consultation on Education Reform (more information at ontario.ca/page/for-the-parents). This workshop broke into three groups. The consensus of the group I was in reflected my concern about the intent of the consultation and how biased it seems to be. That being said, everyone felt the need to participate in the consultation. The information from this workshop will be summarized and shared with trustees and the community.
