The Our Kids Private Education School Fair is the best-attended school fair in Canada, providing a unique opportunity to those attending to be able to explore a plethora of Canadian schools beyond the public education system, all in one place. Families will be able to acquire information for each school as well as speak directly to representatives.
According to the Ministry of Education, government spending on the public school system in Ontario is $17.2 billion, spread over 4800 elementary and secondary institutions. This figure is still millions of dollars short of the ideal. With government spending on public education limited, scrutiny over the academic standards and safety of public schools continues to grow.
On the other hand, funding for private and independent schools is acquired through private resources. As a result, these institutions tend to have better facilities and a more conducive environment for learning. Such popular examples of private and independent schools as Montessori, Waldorf, Gifted, Boarding, and Bilingual, have now become a viable alternative to families of all backgrounds.
