Frankland’s 3rd and final session in this series will specifically look at the history of anti-Black racism in Ontario’s school system. It will provide an overview of education during enslavement, segregation in Canada and issues such as: streaming, low teacher expectations, high push-out rates and disengaging Euro-centric curriculum.
Participants will learn about Black educational activism including the work of: Hidey school teachers, Lennox Farrel, Marlene Green, Anyika Tafari, Monday Gala, Donna Harrow and others. Parents will discuss opportunities to support their children to confront anti-Black racism as a school.
Free and open to community members and other schools! Please share!
NOTE: active participation during the workshop is welcome and encouraged, but not mandatory! Feel free to attend to ‘only’ learn and listen, use the chat function if you prefer, and have cameras on or off. The most important step is to care enough to show up and be eager to learn! And please do stay as long as possible – the breakout rooms & closing session were incredibly well-received in the last two workshops.
