College Responds to Government Announcement
August 29 2018
The Ontario College of Teachers works to protect the public interest. The government's recent announcement affirms that parents and the public can express concerns regarding our members with respect to professional misconduct, incompetence or incapacity by way of our online complaints process. Allowing parents the opportunity to submit concerns regarding their child’s education is not a new process. Our process is and has been public and is based on the principles of fairness, reasonable timing and openness.
The College looks forward to meeting with Ontario's new Minister of Education in the near future to discuss the College's role and that of its Public Interest Committee as it relates to the development of a Parents' Bill of Rights and its relation to our complaint, investigation and discipline process.
As additional information becomes available, the College will ensure that the public, including parents, Ontario Certified Teachers and employers are informed.
Please see the government news release and backgrounder.
