Government Consulting on Rural Education Strategy

The Ministry of Education is holding consultations as part of its development of a rural education strategy. The consultation is being guided by a discussion paper, which outlines a series of key questions, including:

  1. What are the opportunities for school boards to share space in your area? How can the provincial government and school boards support that?
  2. How can we ensure that the impact of schools on local communities is given full consideration?
  3. How can we best recognize the unique funding needs of rural and remote areas?

According to the Ministry about 15% of students in Ontario are enrolled in a rural public school. The government is accepting written feedback, holding in-person consultations, and planning to launch a survey.
