BACKGROUND: In 2018 Ontario's Government for the People Respecting Parents by Holding unprecedented consultations into Education reform. Unfortunately this was the last time the government presented such an opportunity to parents. Consequently, core subjects and physical education curriculums were arbitrarily implemented without Parental input creating an environment of mistrust and lack of transparency on the part of Boards and Ministry of Education.
To ensure that the rights of parents are respected throughout and following the reform process, we demand that the Government begin drafting a Ministry of Education Parents' Bill of Rights.
OUTCOME DESIRED: Establish regulatory and legislative action to ensure that the rights of parents are protected with the end goal to create a Parents Bill of Rights and amended governing model that respects parents, preparing our students for success, and sure academic democracy for all.
