The Quebec Provincial Association of Teachers has lent its support to the Every Teacher project, a national study designed to identify and make widely available the collective expertise that exists among Canadian teachers on inclusive education practices for sexual and gender minority students. This study will enable us to learn what educators think about the climate of Canada’s schools for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, Two Spirit, or questioning (LGBTQ) students; which approaches to inclusion of these students seem to work, and in what contexts, and which don’t; what supports educators in doing this work, and what holds us back. Results will be made widely available throughout the school system.

Completing the Every Teacher survey will take approximately 15-20 minutes. Participation is possible between October 11 and mid-February 2013, but we encourage members to participate as soon as possible in order to reduce the need for follow-up reminders.

All members of teacher organizations are encouraged to participate, including education assistants, counselors, and teachers with administrative responsibilities.

Members and other educators who have not received an emailed invitation can request one by contacting the research team everyteacherproject@gmail.com. Members can also request an invitation by contacting julie_montpetit@qpat-apeq.qc.ca.

Every teacher organization in English Canada has enthusiastically agreed to support this project. QPAT is proud to be among them. Teachers across the country are moving strongly to improve school climate for LGBTQ students; students with LGBTQ parents; heterosexual students who are also homophobically bullied; and the 58% of heterosexual students who are distressed by homophobic elements of school culture. The Every Teacher project team is led by Dr. Catherine Taylor at The University of Winnipeg in partnership with The Manitoba Teachers’ Society. The project is funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada.

McGill University’s International Centre for Youth Gambling Problems and High-Risk Behaviours is conducting a research project aimed at better understanding the perceptions of high school teachers concerning students’ risk-taking behaviours. This brief, 20-25 minute survey looks at different adolescent risk-taking behaviors and gambling-related issues. Teacher participation and feedback will help when developing more effective training and school-based prevention programs.

Teacher participation and responses will be anonymous and are greatly appreciated. Should you complete this survey you will have the option to enter into a draw for a chance to win one of four $100 Future Shop gift certificates, with a grand prize being a NetBook (approximate value: $375). The odds of winning depend on the number of survey responses received. Survey answers will be stored separately from the personal information provided for the draw to ensure your responses remain anonymous. The winners of the draw will be contacted at the conclusion of the study.

Please note that due to the nature of the online survey program, it is not possible to save your responses part way through the survey and return to complete the rest of the questionnaire at a later time. This means the survey must be completed in one session.
