A document published by the Toronto District School Board entitled Decolonizing Our Schools advocates discriminatory hiring practices, “decolonizing and indigenizing” curriculum, replacing traditional discipline with Aboriginal healing circles, and even forcing students to participate in Aboriginal religious ceremonies.
The TDSB instructs teachers to “prioritize Aboriginal people's concerns and worldviews”. Students are to be taught that Aboriginals in Canada are oppressed and therefore teachers and students should “understand Aboriginal people's activism as assertions of human and Indigenous rights”. Furthermore, all school principals should be required to “participate in decolonizing and indigenizing professional development”.
In this document, the TDSB outlines its discriminatory hiring practices.
