Toronto, ON – The Elementary Teachers’ Federation of Ontario (ETFO) will be launching an all-member survey this week to address the rise of violence and aggressive behaviours in elementary schools. The online survey will take place from February 8 to March 8; focus groups will be held at the end of March.
“Violence against ETFO members remains a concerning, pervasive and growing issue,” says ETFO President Karen Brown. “Many school spaces are not safe, especially for those working on the front lines with students whose needs are not being met. We hope the data collected will finally convince the Ford government to take action to address the unacceptable and troubling rise of violence in schools.”
