Notre mission

La mission de l’organisme Education 20/20 Inc. est d’améliorer la qualité de l’éducation pour tous les Canadiens. Deux piliers se trouvent au coeur de sa mission : l’information et l’engagement; l’information étant le carburant et l’engagement le moteur de changement. La nature et la portée des informations portant sur l’éducation à la disposition du public ne reflètent pas l’importance du sujet; nous proposons donc d’initier des modifications. Les activités de communication porteront sur l’éducation, et pas seulement la scolarisation, les besoins des apprenants et le processus d’apprentissage notre site Web deviendra le quartier général.
