Developing and implementing equity and inclusive education policies in Ontario schools

Although much has been done – and continues to be done – to build the publicly funded education system’s capacity to foster equity and inclusiveness in boards and schools, evidence indicates that some groups of students continue to encounter discriminatory barriers to learning. Recent research shows that students who feel connected to teachers, to other students, and to the school itself do better academically.5 This memorandum therefore broadens the scope of the previous Policy/Program Memorandum No. 119 (1993) to take into account a broad range of equity factors, as well as all of the prohibited grounds of discrimination under the Ontario Human Rights Code and other similar considerations. This memorandum fully supports and expands on the principles of antiracism and ethnocultural equity that were outlined in No. 119 (1993), and does not reflect a weakened or reduced commitment to antiracism or ethnocultural equity. This memorandum also promotes a system-wide approach to identifying and removing discriminatory biases and systemic barriers to help ensure that all students feel welcomed and accepted in school life.

By the beginning of the 2010–11 school year (September 2010), boards will have in place an equity and inclusive education policy that addresses the eight areas of focus outlined in this memorandum, a guideline on religious accommodation, and an implementation plan.
