Good education is the great equalizer. It can help to make Ontario a place where every child – irrespective of circumstance or backgrounds – can dare to dream big. Parents therefore know a strong public education system is key to their children’s future. They expect and deserve first-rate education for their children. Ontario’s education system has areas for improvement.
One example: only 50% of grade six students met the provincial math standard in 2016. We need to ensure that our education professionals and schools have the tools they need to meet evolving educational needs and produce better results. We will also honour existing government funding for programs such as tuition support and full-day kindergarten. The Ontario PCs will commit to work with educators to ensure that Ontario’s education system is a world leader in preparing children to realize their dreams.
