ELEMENTARY AND SECONDARY EDUCATION PROGRAM - VOTE 1002

The program provides policy and program direction, as well as financial support, to elementary and secondary schools and agencies in Ontario in order to foster and sustain a high-quality education system for all students in this province, no matter where they live. The program aims to achieve three primary outcomes: excellence in student achievement; preparation of all students for success in further education, work, and community life; and improvement of Ontario's ability to compete in a global marketplace.

Key components of the program are: supporting the implementation of a rigorous curriculum, supporting student learning and maintaining challenging standards of achievement, and supporting excellence in teaching; provision of financial support to a streamlined and efficient education system with a focus on teaching and learning in the classroom, accountability for the funding of elementary and secondary education, and operation of provincial schools for the deaf, blind, deaf/blind and students with learning disabilities.
