Faculty experts busy fielding back-to-school questions from media
September 2, 2010
OISE faculty experts have been ‘staying after class’ over the past couple of weeks in the countdown to the new school year. Frequently called upon by major media outlets across the country to provide informed commentary for back-to-school stories, they play a critical role in educating the public on education issues.
OISE expertise on back-to-school issues is extensive, addressing a diverse range of topics, from giving practical advice to parents on how to develop good study habits, to exploring implications of implementing major government policy decisions on school systems and social and community service delivery organizations.
Recently several OISE experts have been featured in news media back-to-school stories:
Elizabeth Morley, Principal of the Institute of Child Study, explained how JK kids can benefit from a ‘seamless’ school day
Linda Cameron advised parents and educators on how to engage kids early to develop good study habits, how to build the right learning environment, and homework
John Myers commented on what Ontario students’ gains in recent provincial testing means, and a new teaching resource that asks students tough migrant questions
Charles Pascal commented on issues related to the Ontario government’s implementation of his report on early learning and probable benefits for children and the community
