HERE’S HOW THE AUTHORS DESCRIBE THIS REPORT:

In February 2015, the Ontario Alliance of Black School Educators (ONABSE) contracted with Turner Consulting Group Inc. to conduct research into the experiences of Black educators in Ontario. The goal of this research was to give voice to the experiences and perspectives of Black educators, the challenges they face, and identify how best ONABSE can continue to work to influence public policy concerning the education of African Canadian people.

While there are various studies that explore the experiences of African Canadians in the labour market, none have specifically explored the experiential realities of Black educators. This research, a first in Ontario, is the product of three month’s work by the consulting team. We heard from African Canadians about their experiences as educators and their perceptions of systemic and attitudinal anti-Black racism in Ontario’s public education system.
