Trustees at Toronto’s public school board voted Wednesday night to approve a major overhaul of the admissions process at specialized programs and schools, replacing ability-based assessments with an interest-based application.
During the Toronto District School Board meeting, trustees criticized and applauded the controversial change to the process, which is aimed at improving access and will impact programs that typically focus on areas such as the arts, athletics, science and math.
In her opening remarks on the issue, Director of Education Colleen Russell-Rawlins said the policy change will “provide a fair chance for all students who have an enduring interest and passion for an area of program to be accepted.”


“We must remember that public education is for everyone. It is our responsibility to remove barriers that prevent students from access to education and provide them the pathways to pursue their dreams and realize their full potential.”
Currently, applicants for these programs are assessed on their ability through auditions, formal portfolios, entrance exams or report cards. Under the new policy, applications will be based on a student’s interest and they will need to demonstrate an active interest or passion in an area. If demand for a program exceeds available space, then a random selection process will be used, with priority given to those from under-served communities.
There are about 40 specialty programs and schools — 16 accepted every applicant because there was sufficient space. The policy change will affect those applying for September 2023, and only apply to high school programs. About 9,000 of the TDSB’s 235,000 students are in a specialized program or school.
In recent weeks, news of the proposed change upset some parents and students, who say a lottery process is unfair and may preclude those who have been working hard towards getting into a specialized program. Some also worry that an interest-based application may ultimately result in programs being watered down.

Russell-Rawlins said the board “will closely monitor the quality of experience and outcomes of these programs.”

公立学校这么搞没啥不好的,建议篮球棒球冰球队也按抽签来,多鼓励华人的孩子们打打球泡泡妞飞飞叶子,别总一副成绩很好戴个眼镜斯斯文文的样子,活该职场被人欺负。

TDSB是全省最大的教育局,它的一举一动有引导性作用。

渥太华英语公立教育局OCDSB有三个High performance programs是需要申请和考试评估进入的,估计在不远的将来也会效仿TDSB

High Performance Academic -Colonel By and Merivale IB

High Performance Arts - Canterbury

High Performance Athletic - John Maccrea

投票之前TDSB有一个补充,stem programs方面,IB因为受IBO国际组织约束,遴选标准不在这次改变范围内。。TOPS and MaCS是TDSB自己老牌academic programs,会受到很大影响。

IB 在大多地区之前也是鱼龙混杂了。大多地区除了少数IB学校还可以,大多数入学选拔没压力,想进就能进的。肉联上有很多讨论。

OTTAWA现在的IB选拔,也形同虚设了。越来越松,越来越随意。
这话如果不从你的嘴巴里说出来真对不住大家对你的期望:tx:

其实这些PROGRAM,多花的钱和整个教育经费相比真的没有多少。还是平均主义的思想在抬头。加拿大在教育上的对大众的投入在世界上都算是很高的。没有几个比加拿大强,比如经费,师资总体上按学生和人口数量分配。但针对特殊PROGRAM, 确实需要门槛的,搞平均和革命,那就犯了大错啦。把中国文革那套搬过来了。即使是现在的中国,也没走到这一步。

本地IB,最近2年,一年不需要考,一年是1小时开卷。

当然有疫情的因素。即使疫情前,是啥样? 一个在HOME SCHOOL 数学就80-85分的,在本地IB FULL SIZE入学考试,数学接近满分 :evil:
