Bruce Rodrigues, Chief Executive Officer of the Education Quality and Accountability Office (EQAO) has been appointed Ontario’s Deputy Minister of Education. He will remain with the provincial agency until the middle of October before taking on his new role with the Ministry of Education.
"Bruce has been a transformational and inspirational leader throughout his time at EQAO. He has expanded the reach and collaboration of this agency with Ontario’s school boards and has always led with the best interests of students at heart. Although we’re sad to lose him, we are delighted that that this champion of student achievement and well-being will take over such an influential portfolio in Ontario’s education system."
