    The Creation of the Toronto Board of Education

    From its creation in 1847 and for the next 50 years, the Toronto Public School Board drove much of the development and expansion of public education in the City of Toronto. However it was not the only school board in Toronto at the time. The Collegiate Institute Board and the Technical School Board were also in place with specific political and practical reasons for being. In 1900, a city referendum evaluated public education and the results favoured an amalgamation of the three Boards.
