The Greater Toronto Area Conference on Alternative Public Schooling: Past, Present and Future


Funding Program:

SSHRC Connection Grant

Funding Amount:


A 2-day conference was held in Toronto in November 2012 that will bring together participants from at least eight public and Catholic school boards, including teacher-practitioners, parents, students, district school board officials, administrators, Ministry of Education representatives, and academic researchers (including graduate students) from Ontario universities, as well as teacher candidates and other interested community members. This is a long overdue forum to exchange ideas, share experiences of practice, discover/re-discover historical roots, and consider the present context and future possibilities for alternative schooling in our communities.
