Laurie French, President of the CSBA urges all Canadians to work together for social justice and equity. Recent events are a stark reminder that we all need to address systemic racism – silence is not acceptable. It is critical that white privilege be understood and acknowledged as a fundamental part of anti-racism learning and action.
School boards throughout Canada strive for equity and can never let up. We must remain focused and committed to the changes needed at every level of education and society.
