EQUITY & INCLUSIVE EDUCATION

Ontario's Vision for Education

“Ontario schools need to be places where everyone can succeed in a culture of high expectations. They need to be places where educators and students value diversity, respect each other, and see themselves reflected in their learning. It is particularly im- portant to provide the best possible learning opportunities and supports for students who may be at risk of not succeeding. . . .

“. . . The fundamental principle driving this work is that every student has the opportunity to succeed, regardless of ancestry, culture, ethnicity, gender, gender identity, language, physical and intellectual ability, race, religion, sex, sexual orientation, socio-economic status or other factors.”

(Achieving Excellence, 2014, p. 8)
