Auditor-General Releases Report On Government Oversight Of Private Schools

December 10, 2013 – Auditor-General of Ontario –
Audit’s objectives were to assess whether the Ministry had adequate procedures in place to:
*assess the effectiveness of private schools in providing satisfactory instruction
*
ensure compliance with the Education Act and related ministry policies.

Some Noteworthy Report Highlights –

“The Ministry does not provide any funding but, given that publicly funded education exceeds $10,000 per student per year, private schools in effect either save the
taxpayers
over $1 billion annually or enable the Ministry to allocate this
amount to other education priorities. (pg. 180)”

“The Ministry will take appropriate steps to expand initiatives to provide informa­tion regarding consumer awareness about the private school sector.” (pg. 184)

“A strong private school system can benefit the taxpayers as well as both public and private school students.” (pg. 180)
