Racism in Schools: A Panel Discussion on Power, Privilege and Anti-Racism
Please join us for an engaging panel discussion about power, privilege and anti-racism in our schools. Learn about important issues and barriers faced by racialized students, families and staff and how the whole school community can support equity and approaches to justice. We hope to “connect the dots” to the TDSB Enhancing Equity Task Force Report and Recommendations published in December 2017; the Board’s February 7, 2018 approval of the report (Helping all Students Succeed: Director’s Response to the Enhancing Equity Task Force); and next steps to improved outcomes for all students.
