Almost everyone attends school in Canada, but struggles around educational access and equity continue to the present day.
A new four-part, Enoch Turner Schoolhouse series, Opening the Schoolhouse to All, explores the historical foundation of current policies linked to race, gender and disability in the classroom. A final session on higher education probes the purpose and value of liberal education. Scheduled speakers include Carl James, Jean Augustine Chair in Education at York University; Margaret Spoelstra, President, Autism Ontario; Lorna Marsden, President Emerita, York University; and Kathleen Wynne, former premier of Ontario.
The series begins in November 2020 and concludes in January 2021.
