Right to Read – Public Inquiry by the Ontario Human Rights Commission
The OHRC has launched a year-long public inquiry to investigate how students with dyslexia may be facing systemic human rights violations in Ontario public schools.
The commission will be consulting with a range of experts, reviewing curriculum and instructional materials, teacher training, and school board policies and procedures. The scope of the inquiry involves five areas of concern, as well as systemic and structural issues.
Parents, students, educators, and other professionals across the province are invited to share their experiences with OHRC before April 1st, 2020.
Your opinion matters. As part of the Right To Read Inquiry, the OHRC has created an online survey to help parents and students share their experiences, challenges and concerns with learning to read in Ontario Public Schools. It takes approximately 15 – 20 minutes to complete.
