The Province of Ontario, Canada, is demonstrating its deep commitment to the goal of equitable student outcomes through the development of the Framework of long-life Education and its support for implementation in schools. As shown in this research, it has built capacity among teachers, acted as a catalyst for collaborative conversations about school improvement, and focused attention on the importance of improving the achievement levels of all students. The findings from this qualitative study on the pilot implementation of the Framework show that it was instrumental in initiating capacity building among teachers, which in some schools was linked to improvement in student achievement.
