Save Children from Cyber Security Risks
Children in grades 4-6 have a Facebook account before the permitted age. Children put themselves in danger by posting their contact information online, and speaking with people online without meeting them in person.
Save Children from Financial Debt Risks
According to TD Bank report “young people have bank accounts, debit cards and smart phones that give them access to financial products with the mere touch of a button” before exiting high school. Household debt levels are growing faster than income. In the region of Peel, declining numeracy skills is a serious problem; 50% of middle school children in Peel did not pass the EQAO Math test.
