We are currently working with People for Education on an investigation of the Future of Public Education in Canada. The aim of the project is to better understand the complexities of the emerging and evolving public education context as part of a changing societal landscape in Canada and beyond, and the social impact of that myriad change. This comprehensive investigation will provide deeper understanding of future issues to support the larger goal of advocating for support of this critical sector.

By engaging with policy makers, education leaders, teachers, students, parents and the larger community we will build a robust platform to contribute to a new resilient ecosystem.

We will evaluate international best-practice and provide a framework for the future of public education. The project will examine knowledge skills and instructional systems to help to develop future-ready education for all.
