The 2011 Ontario Student and Parent Survey 2011
The Ontario Student and Parent Survey is OSTA-AECO's largest initiative to consult with the students of Ontario. This year, OSTA-AECO worked in partnership with Student Vote, People for Education and ScholarshipsCanada. More than 7,100 students and 2,500 parents were surveyed on approximately ten questions ranging from social media, mental health, to sex education. Visit www.studentsurvey.ca to download the results.
Mental Health and Well-Being Charter of Rights
OSTA-AECO published the Charter of Rights for Mental Health and Well-Being last May. The Charter of Rights for Mental Health and Well-Being for Children and Youth is a set of values that children and youth have designated as imperative in order for both schools and communities to adequately address and provide support for mental health issues. Student Trustees from across Ontario have worked hard with the Coalition for Child and Youth Mental Health to produce this document. Please follow this link to read the Charter in both French and English at http://www.osta-aeco.org/.
