Sep. 23, 2020

OBA Education Law PROGRAM | Original Program Date: September 23, 2020

Racism and systemic discrimination are long standing issues in Ontario’s public education system. Join us as we examine the historical and legal context of these issues with a spotlight on anti-black and anti-indigenous racism in our schools. Our panel of experts will discuss the intersection of race and student discipline, staff leadership and community engagement, as well as lessons learned through relevant case law, system reviews and inquests. We will delve into these key legal issues as lawyers, parents and community members to examine the legal framework within which to challenge and dismantle racism and discrimination within our education system.
