Cover: Building Better SchoolsDuring the 2018 provincial election campaign, ETFO is working to ensure that important education issues are discussed and debated by the political parties, party candidates, and the public.

This Provincial Election page includes ETFO's updated election agenda that promotes policies to improve elementary education, a summary report of an ETFO public opinion poll on education issues conducted in January 2018, ETFO resources that promote information about the election, and links to the four main political parties.

Content will be added to the page as the political parties release their policies and platforms. It will also include the party responses to ETFO's election survey.

The Building Better Schools plan has also been updated on the site.
