Mandatory e-learning has poor support from students, teachers, parents: TDSB survey

"our survey found that there are significant concerns among students, parents and teachers related to the government’s plan for mandatory e-learning."

A new Toronto District School Board (TDSB) survey shows that students, parents and teachers do not support the government’s plan to make e-learning mandatory for high school students.

The survey, which was released on Tuesday, polled 5,000 TDSB members, including 428 secondary students, 1,938 parents of both elementary and secondary students, and 2,730 secondary school teachers.

About 81 per cent of parents and 97 per cent of secondary school teachers said they did not support the policy.
