ON changes high school graduation requirements, increases exposure to career education

The Government of Ontario has introduced a suite of reforms for its secondary school system that include new high school graduation requirements, career education funding, and the return of the student exit survey. As part of the reforms, ON is investing $14M in 2024-25 to support career coaching for students and the development of related resources. ON Minister of Education Stephen Lecce stated that the “bottom line” of the changes is to ensure “students graduate with practical learning that leads them to better jobs and bigger paycheques.” The province is also adding a new financial literacy graduation requirement, reducing the number of compulsory course groups, and adjusting the requirements and qualification guidelines for teachers and guidance counsellors.
