Should students have a right to privacy while at school?

 
The College thinks so. That's why, for the first time in its 20-year history, we intervened at the Supreme Court in R. v. Jarvis to provide our perspective on student privacy and what constitutes acceptable professional conduct for teachers.
 
In the appeal of a criminal case involving an Ontario teacher who was charged and acquitted in two courts with voyeurism after using a pen camera to take secret videos of his female students at school, the College intervened at the Supreme Court to address student privacy in learning environments.

Myth or Fact?
 
Myth: Newly certified teachers are less successful today in finding full employment compared to 10 years ago.
 
Fact: Newly certified teachers are more successful today in achieving full employment. Although there are still many unemployed graduates of some English language programs who are unemployed in their first year, job prospects are steadily improving. It's especially true for those with French language expertise.
 
This is what our most recent Transition to Teaching survey reveals.
