Progress Reports on The Quality of Public Education in Canada

The Learning Partnership has created a series of progress reports entitled, “The Quality of Public Education in Canada” as a means of drawing parents and the wider public into an important national conversation about education in Canada. They are designed to identify areas in which we are doing well, where we should be doing better and the role each of us can play in providing the best public education possible for our children.

CEOs Roundtable: From Great to Excellent – A Response to Ontario’s Education Consultations

On September 19, 2013 The Learning Partnership convened a roundtable in response to the Ontario Ministry of Education’s Great to Excellent consultations. The CEO Roundtable report documents the opinions and ideas offered by Canada’s top CEOs in response to the Ontario Ministry of Education’s consultations.

Early Years

This Progress Report, the sixth in a continuing series, is designed to increase awareness among Canadians about the Early Years.  This report provides information on how educators and parents can ensure that a child’s experiences in the first few years of their lives can have an impact on their development and future learning.

Resilience

This report is the product of a partnership between eight provinces and territories, the Canadian Council on Learning and The Learning Partnership. As a result of our focus on students at risk at a national conference in 2006, The Learning Partnership mobilized regional roundtable discussions in Ontario, British Columbia, Manitoba, Alberta, Saskatchewan and Newfoundland on the topic of resilience. The information shared culminated in an exciting national conference in Winnipeg in November of 2008, the National Dialogue on Resilience in Youth. This process has brought many voices and perspectives together to enrich our understanding about developing resilience in youth.

Demographics

Students At Risk

This Progress Report, the second in a continuing series, aims to raise awareness among Canadians about “Who is at risk?” While most Canadian students are doing quite well on international tests, there are a number of students who aren’t making the grade. This achievement gap should be a concern for all Canadians.

Measuring Success

This Progress Report, the first in a continuing series, aims to raise awareness among Canadians about measuring student achievement. In this report, we discuss three testing programs that tell us how Canadian students are doing. They provide comparative information on how students are performing over time, in different parts of the country, and how they compare to students in other countries. All three sets of tests measure student achievement at key grades and age groups in core subjects.
