Education in Canada

The Black Experience

Education in Canada is an interactive and stimulating town hall designed to provide supporters with exclusive occasions to hear from featured experts…

  • Curriculum: What do Black students need to learn as part of curriculum to prepare them for their future career path?
  • Representation: How can we sustainably increase the proportion of self-identified Black staff at all levels of public education systems across Canada?
  • Pathways: How can we empower students so that they are best positioned to take advantage of all opportunities to fully participate in society?

Join Education Task Force Chairs Eleanor McIntosh, Principal Durham DSB, Michelle Hughes, Recruitment & Communication Coordinator, Schulich School of business, and Paul Green, Educator Toronto DSB for an interactive discussion on how we ensure that Black students achieve greater academic success from K-12 so that we see improved overall outcomes.
