Summary of the strategy
The strategy aims to help educators identify and remove discriminatory biases and systemic barriers to support the achievement and well-being of all students. These barriers — related to racism, sexism, homophobia and other forms of discrimination — may prevent some students from reaching their full potential.
The strategy builds on successful Ministry of Education, school board, and school policies and practices. As a result of the strategy, every school board has:
- an equity and inclusive education policy
- a religious accommodation guideline
We want to create a culture of high expectations where factors such as race, gender and socio-economic status do not prevent students from achieving ambitious outcomes
