Enhancing Student Success Petition
TO THE LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY OF ONTARIO:
WHEREAS: The basics of reading, writing, and mathematics are fundamental for students’ achievement; and too many school boards are jeopardizing student achievement by straying away from teaching the basics of reading, writing, and mathematics; and parents are being bullied and denied representation at school board meetings, and trustees are being bullied by other trustees;
THEREFORE WE, THE UNDERSIGNED, PETITION THE LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY OF ONTARIO AS FOLLOWS:
That the Legislative Assembly of Ontario authorize the Minister of Education to set provincial priorities in education in the area of student achievement and authorize the Minister of Education to issue policies and guidelines setting out the training to be completed by board members, directors of education, supervisory officers, and superintendents, and require boards to adopt codes of conduct that apply to members of the board.
