You’ve solicited suggestions. Herewith one re education, into which successive governments have poured additional billions for may years without the least impact upon the sad fact that:
ONTARIO’S EDUCATION RESULTS, MEASURED BY EQAO OR ANY OF SEVERAL INTERNATIONAL TESTS, CONTINUE DOWNWARD FROM MEDIOCRE TOWARD POOR, AS THEY HAVE DONE FOR YEARS.
An important part of this problem is the Ontario curricula, which guarantee poor results; the more faithfully followed, the poorer the results.
Alternative education paradigms, in which money follows the student and parents have choices, would quickly abandon Ontario’s failed “Constructivist” model that actively strangles good principles, and adopt the model that has yielded good results for centuries, i.e. Direct Instruction.
Will you grasp this nettle?
