Event description
This year we will explore how public education is preparing students for their futures in a rapidly changing world.

About this Event

Our conference brings together diverse stakeholders in our public education system to spend the day thinking, discussing, and connecting with each other around what matters to them most – ensuring our education system is preparing all students for success. This year educators, parents, researchers, students, school board and ministry staff will come together to explore the conference theme of “the future of public education."
