The Campaign for Public Education (CPE) is committed to improving and defending our public education system. This commitment is based on the CPE’s recognition of the role of public education
The CPE recognizes the need for community-based, safe and healthy schools at the heart of our neighbourhoods providing education, recreation and other services.
CPE members are parents, students, education workers, teachers, school trustees, city councillors and other public education advocates. The CPE is committed to ensuring that our public education system has all the necessary resources to meet the needs of all students – from early childhood programs through to programs for older adult learners.
The CPE recognizes that marginalized and racialized communities face systemic barriers and are unacceptably under-represented where decisions about education are made. Ensuring that the public education system fully meets the needs of learners from these communities and supporting demands for access from these communities, are therefore priorities of the CPE.
After more that a decade of campaigning for public education, the CPE is redoubling its efforts to win a complete overhaul of the education funding so that we can truly give our learners what they need to succeed.
