On October 1st, 2022 the Elementary Teacher’s Federation of Ontario hosted Generation Black: You’re Next – a symposium held to discuss the lack of representation of Black educators in classrooms across Ontario. FBC helped in the planning and execution of this event which was a huge achievement for the ETFO. ETFO hopes to continue these necessary conversations beyond the symposium.
As part of their call to action, they are asking individuals to fill out the Building Better Schools link and the Why We Need More Black Teachers link to share in their own words why we need more Black teachers. You can view footage from the event below.
