Introducing the Public Education Exchange

The Public Education Exchange (PEX) enables researchers, educators, advocates, and members of the public to share and create knowledge.

What is the Public Education Exchange?

The Public Education Exchange (PEX) advocates for public schools that are equitable, accessible, publicly funded, democratically governed, and in pursuit of the common good.

The PEX uses 3 strategies to generate and mobilize knowledge about education privatization in Canada. The PEX Network connects researchers and public education advocates so they can share their expertise and experiences. The PEX engages the public in policy dialogues about education privatization in their communities. Through research, the PEX examines the trajectory of education privatization and its impacts on social inequality and the public good.
