Message from the Chair
2013-14 has been a tremendous year of growth for our venerable Association as we continue to support courageous educators driving change in their school communities. Our What’s standing in the way of change in education? Conference held in Calgary last October was a great example of this support – it also demonstrated CEA’s unique ability to convene such a diverse pan-Canadian group of educators, teachers and students and cemented our position as ‘the honest broker’ within the sector.

This reputation also extends to the focus of our research and publications released throughout the year, which included assessment, inclusion, teacher engagement, teaching to diversity, technology integration, and post-secondary pathways to name a few. Offering this authoritative evidence-based analysis exemplifies our role as a go-to organization reflecting the myriad of challenges facing our public education systems today.

I would like to extend my deep gratitude to CEA’s ministry of education and school board members. This support makes it possible for CEA to focus on offering research, events, and publications that strive to provoke and inform a vision for education systems that adapt to rapidly change needs of all learners.

I look forward to continuing to ‘push the envelope’ for change alongside my dedicated CEA Board and Council Members – a passionate network of leaders across the country who believe that we can transform teaching and learning in Canada.
Message from the President and CEO
While the electronic format of our Annual Report may be considered unconventional, the process of reflecting on our progress over the last year remains tried and true. In my four years as President and CEO of CEA, I have had the pleasure of meeting thousands of educators and stakeholders, and the number of people who know about CEA, want to work with CEA, visit our website, access our research, request our expertise and opinion compared to four years ago has increased exponentially. This is a testament to the perseverance of our dedicated staff and volunteers who have supported this visibility building.

Our What’s standing in the way of change in education? Conference revealed a number of conclusions for me – that we need to build a sense of urgency for change, nurture trust for change, recognize and support the courageous leadership among educators who are currently scaling innovative policy and practice despite the deeply entrenched barriers throughout the system. But most importantly, we aim to instill a sense of hope that transformation is possible and that we all have a role to play in embedding a change mindset in schools, school districts, faculties and ministries of education, and in doing so, the wider school community will reaffirm their trust in educators – that we can and we will meet the learning needs of all students.
