OPHA's Breastfeeding Promotion Network submitted a response to the Ministry of Education on November 15, 2013 to inform the next phase of Ontario’s Education Strategy: “From Great to Excellent”
. In order to facilitate discussion, the Ministry has also released a consultation document highlighting 7 key questions they would like stakeholders to address. OPHA has identified the following questions that may be of particular interest given our current areas of focus:
What are the skills, knowledge and characteristics students need to succeed after they have completed school, and how do we better support all learners in their development?
What does student well-being mean to you, and what is the role of the school in supporting it?
From your perspective, what further opportunities exist to close gaps and increase equity to support all children and students in reaching their full potential?
