English Abstract

Quoted from the TDSB document:"In support of the Toronto District School Board guidelines on the teaching of controversial and sensitive issues, this document is intended to help teachers and students understand and deal confidently with bias and controversial issues. It supports a cross-curricular approach to equity education and recognizes human rights in the school environment and in the community. It recognizes that the freedom to learn and to think is essential to a democracy. Its basic premise is that teachers must teach students to identify and deal with bias in any medium. Ideally, the guidelines should transcend the classroom and be applied to other aspects of student and school life. Learning flourishes when the lesson is connected to the learner’s life. Education cannot exist in a vacuum; through its own community of students and staff, the school is linked to the community that surrounds it, and to the greater world."
