Right to Read – Public Inquiry
The Ontario Human Rights Commission is conducting an in-depth public inquiry into reading instruction in Ontario public schools.
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.
