Andrea Gillespie, superintendent of Early Learning, Elementary School Improvement and Operations for Trillium Lakelands District School Board, says the board has a policy of asking homeschoolers to register their children, "so we know they're out there," she says. About 30 per cent of the 123 families that have registered with the board as homeschoolers are from Muskoka. Gillespie sees the standardized curriculum for both public and Catholic boards as a point in favour of public schooling. "It's grounded in big ideas and large-thinking concepts," she says. "In the 21st century, we know it's no longer about discrete facts. We can't even know how the world is going to look." Everything in the curriculum, she says, works towards developing six skills: responsibility, organization, independent work, collaboration, initiative and self-regulation. "These are really well-researched learning skills, coming in part from conversations with employers over the years. It's about learning to get on in the world, and those are the six skills you need," she says. Gillespie also stresses the community and culture created in schools. From her experience as a school principal, she recalls, "A tragedy would befall a family and the whole school would chip in whatever way they could.
