The Geographic Divide in Public Education 

wealth disparityThere are many many ways to think about equity in our public education system. We are used to talking about – as we should – the relationship between students’ socio-economic status and their chances for success in education. And we rightfully and regularly raise concerns about connections between identity and success. But what is the impact of geography? Are we paying enough attention to the divide between our rural/northern areas and the urban south? Are we creating a divide that will have a lasting impact? This talk will focus on what’s working and what’s not in how we fund and support education across Ontario.
