Something I have observed over the past several years is that School Councils function better if: a) the school community actually knows the role of the school council and b) the school, community knows who's on the current council. Posting this information early in the year is the responsibility of the principal. if it is not happening, make sure you communicate it yourselves.

Hi Aliya, I think you asked me a question and I just want to make sure I have understood you correctly. Do you want to get more information about what studies you would need to undertake to move from the area of psychology, marketing to more of an education research role? If so, here are a few links: Ontario Institute for Studies in Education (or U of T) and York University may have some courses of interest. Georgian college also has an program for graduates (not just in education) but to train to become a research analyst. There may be others here in the online community who could give you more information. Hope these links give you someplace to start gathering a bit more info anyway... Thanks so much for your message! It is wonderful to hear how you became involved so soon and decided it was your goal not to feel like "a guest" in the school. Can you come to our conference? It's at York University. The cost for one day, including lunch is $60 and we childcare is free. Here's a link to more info about that:
Let me know if you have any questions about the conference. I hope you can come!

Hi Aliya and welcome to this online community! It's a great place to share ideas, brainstorm, or ask questions. You'll find that many people are willing to share their thoughts and ideas. It's also wonderful to see you are involved at the school and that you found out about this space already, even though your kids are so young. It often takes parents some time to get to know how things work before joining the school council and such. How did you get interested in being involved so soon? It's terrific!

Paul Hough replied to Annie Kidder's discussion 'Are We Measuring What Matters in Education?'
"This is an interesting concept. I have long felt that EQAO doesn't really offer much outside a spot in time meansurement of how kids take tests in Language and Math. For me, I wonder how "what counts" might be measured? "

"I changed camps only recently when I tutored two Grade 3 children for the EQAO assessment, using past tests. I wrongly assumed that "standardized tests" were what they used to be... In Math, children are required to "explain their…"
Marina Papic replied to Stan Taylor's discussion 'Math Instruction: Semesters vs. All Year Long'
"Hello, I definitely agree and not just regarding math, but for any type of learning if it is too segmented, then the learning process is definitely interrupted. That being said, having math and other classes all year long is more beneficial as…"
