Media Advisory - Researchers Identify Teacher Working Conditions Critical for Student Success

    TORONTO, June 13 /CNW/ -

    What:     Most people would agree that the way to improve student
              learning lies in the classroom. But what conditions need to be
              in place to enable teachers to make a difference? The
              Elementary Teachers' Federation of Ontario (ETFO) is holding
              its first international symposium on teacher working conditions
              to focus on this key question for student learning.

    Who:      Speakers from Canada, the U.S. and England will explore a
              number of themes that promote teacher working conditions and
              identify strategies to make positive working conditions a part
              of every school environment.

              A closing panel will identify key conclusions of the symposium
              and needed actions to ensure positive teacher working
              conditions are in place to support student learning.

    When:     June 14, 4:00 p.m. - 8:30 p.m.
              June 15, 9:00 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.
