From Obstacles to Opportunities - Classroom Teacher Survey

The Ontario Teachers' Federation Curriculum Forum is spearheading an initiative to identify the main obstacles to being more successful in the classroom.

A preliminary survey was sent to the members of the Curriculum Forum, and the following broad categories were identified:
  • Access to Current Technology
  • Access to Self-Directed PD
  • Bureaucracy
  • Class Size/Composition
  • Opportunities for Collaboration
  • Pace of Change
  • Resources
  • Student Attitude
  • Union
  • Work/Life Balance
  • Workload
A second survey has now been prepared, and input is being solicited from as many OTF classroom teachers as possible. The results of the survey will be used to help inform discussions about how we can overcome some of these obstacles. My hope, as a member of the OTF Curriculum Forum Steering Committee, is that this will be the start of an ongoing dialogue amongst all interested parties in an effort to overcome these obstacles.

If you are interested in completing the survey, please visit:

Once you identify the category of your primary obstacle, there is only one question to be answered, so it shouldn't take you more than a few minutes to complete.

Thank you so much for helping with this important initiative!
