Government Takes Action to Ensure Inclusive Environment for All Students

Stephen Lecce, Minister of Education, announced the appointees to conduct a formal review of the Peel District School Board (PDSB).  

Further to a statement made by Minister Lecce on November 7, 2019, Suzanne Herbert and Ena Chadha have been appointed to conduct an immediate review of the PDSB.   

The review is intended to address concerns about equity, including anti-Black racism, and serious issues related to governance, leadership and human resources practices in the board. The reviewers will work closely with PDSB and provide a report to the Minister, which includes how the board can work to ensure effective board governance that promotes equality, increases accountability and transparency, and safeguards the success and well-being of all students.

“Schools must be safe, inclusive and welcoming places, not only for students and their families, but for the entire community, which is why the need for this review is critical,” said Minister Lecce. “We are moving forward with the appointment of two reviewers – Ms. Herbert and Ms. Chadha – as part of our efforts to combat racism and help ensure all children feel respected in schools. We want all students, parents, educators, and staff to see themselves reflected in their schools and school boards, and this review will help the PDSB move forward in this mission.”

The Ontario government is committed to creating learning and working environments where all students and staff feel welcome, included, and respected. This review is critical to assuring students, parents, and educators that schools and school boards respect and uphold principles of equity and human rights.
