People for Education is a group of parents working to preserve fully publicly-funded education in Ontario. In 1996, we began as part of the parent association at a downtown Toronto school and have grown to become a provincial organization.We believe public education is the foundation of a civil society. In 2004 People for Education became a registered charity (Charitable No. 85719 0532 RR0001).
Public education is the foundation of a civil society. People for Education is dedicated to the ideal of a fully publicly-funded education system that guarantees every child access to the education that meets his or her needs. We work toward this ideal by doing research, by providing clear, accessible information to the public, and by engaging people to become actively involved in education issues in their own community.
to liaise with boards of education, federal, provincial and local government agencies for the purpose of providing good quality education to students in the publicly funded education system and improving the resources received by publicly funded schools,
to sponsor conferences, seminars, public meetings for the exchange of ideas, information and experiences of parents, students, educators, and employees, with respect to publicly funded schools,
to conduct research and collect data concerning the publicly funded education system and its resources in Ontario, and
