This workshop uses People for Education’s Annual Ontario School Survey to examine whether schools have the resources required to adequately support student learning beyond academic content knowledge in areas such as literacy, numeracy, science, and social studies. Across the world, there is agreement that students need to be able to develop understanding, skills, and habits in areas beyond reading, writing, and math in order to be successful participants in society after graduation. Everyone agrees with this idea in principle, but few jurisdictions are evaluating whether their schools have the resources and capacity necessary to deliver on these lofty goals. We take a look at Ontario through this lens. If our goal is to develop transferable skills through a well-rounded education, how will we know if it is possible? How could and should we be measuring this?
