New Ophea Report: Parental Attitudes Towards Health in Ontario Schools

Thursday, March 8, 2018 - 10:04
Ophea Parent Poll

Today Ophea released the results from a survey completed in fall 2017 by Environics Research Group.

Ophea surveyed parents of Ontario school-aged children to better understand their perspectives on pressing health issues, Health and Physical Education (H&PE), healthy schools, physical activity, and safety.

The survey results found that parents believe that Ontario schools have an important role to play in supporting the health and well-being of their children, but have concerns about how equipped kids are to meet 21st century health challenges.
