Our mission is to ensure that ALL students thrive in our schools.
With over 125-years of experience as the leading independent national voice in Canadian K-12 education, the Canadian Education Association is proud to launch the EdCan Network to support the thousands of courageous educators working tirelessly to ensure that all students discover their place, purpose and path.
The quality of Canadian public education should be judged by more than standardized test scores. Competing political narratives about the role of public education often takes the focus away from what’s best for students. The EdCan Network includes voices from across the entire spectrum of K-12 education, producing meaningful professional learning events that help bring out the elephants in the room to build a positive forward-thinking narrative for the future of public education in Canada.
The EdCan Network believes that:
- all learners’ needs should take precedence over ideology and politics so that they discover their passions and interests in deeply engaging learning environments, ones that inspire them to become confident and competent learners for life;
- all educators should be trusted as designers of learning and further empowered to innovate and bridge the gap between policy decisions and actual learning;
- a more flexible public education system is required to support the rapidly changing and diverse needs of all learners.
