People for Education have released the results of their 19th Annual School Survey , titled The Geography of Opportunity: What’s Needed for Broader Student Success.

From page 3 of the report:

“While there are some areas of improvement, we are also seeing cuts to important specialist positions, such as elementary teacher-librarians. In addition, elementary schools in rural areas and small towns are less likely to have access to health and physical education, music, and arts teachers when compared to schools in urban/suburban locations.”

From page 2 of the news release

“According to Annie Kidder, Executive Director of People for Education, “The survey results raise the question: should the quality of a student’s education be determined by where they live? Ontario’s economy and future well-being requires a renewed commitment to those citizens who live outside urban areas. Students should have access to a rich education, whether they live in a rural farming community, a northern mining town, or in the heart of a big city.”
