Education Week May 5th to 9th

Education Week was first celebrated in 1930, and the Ontario Secondary School Teachers’ Federation is commemorating Education Week’s 84th anniversary with the theme “Ontario: World Class.” Education Week was established by OSSTF in the fall of 1930, during a period of waning public interest in education due to the Depression, when a good education was no longer considered a guarantee of employment. It was hoped that by highlighting a new secondary school curriculum and celebrating public education, the citizens of Ontario would once again take an interest in their schools. In the years that followed, Ontarians developed a renewed sense of concern for education and the government made a strong commitment to strengthening the province’s public education system.
