There are so many things you can do to help improve public education in Toronto.

Step 1: The first step is to connect with others like yourself who’re deeply concerned about the state of public education in our city. Sending a rep from your group, agency or organization to our monthly meetings (4th Monday of each month except July and December) is a great way to do that. Or you can browse through our links page and find a member group that most closely fits your perspective and then get in touch with them directly.

Step 2: An important next step is to learn more about current issues. Use our site and the links to get up to date on the key issues, people and debates involved in this ongoing battle.

Step 3: Another good step is to start engaging. Comment on postings, news articles, facebook and twitter postings, leave comments on politicians’ blogs, leave comments on our blog – or even start your own blog!

The most important thing is to speak up and speak out and let those in power know that you’re not going to tolerate any further degradation in our school system. The key points are staying up to date, staying connected, and speaking out. If enough of us do that… we can rebuild public education in Toronto and create the best, well-funded system our kids and our neighbourhoods need and deserve.

Step 4:  Contact your school trustee about the issues you feel are priority in your neighbourhood. Request tht they report on their progress on advancing these issues at the board.  Check the voting record of your trustee on this site.
