Interesting that it's the *teacher* being blamed for the students being on the trip without passing their swim test rather than the principal...who is supposed to approve all field trips & ensure that the paperwork is all in order. Or at least both of them being held accountable.

I read ahead, as I often do! The ending has left me with a mixture of feelings. We need a solution, and I'm not 100% sure how we get there. I do know we need to be even without an updated curriculum.

We are still waiting for a response to the cancellation, then "postponement" of the education work. It has been 11 days since the work was cancelled, 8 days since changed to postponed

Yep. I’m still waiting to hear from the Ministry about the cancelled TRC curriculum, too. I was so looking forward to doing this important work.

Just how safe are Truth and calls to action if the new government of Ontario can swat one aside with the stroke of a pen?

The work of reconciliation is vital and strengthens our communities, economies, well being and diverse education systems. Truth precedes reconciliation. Only through education is this work sustained and evolved.

It’s interesting how my kids in about 30 seconds can understand “why learning about indigenous peoples—past, present, future—is valid, necessary, and meaningful”. It should be built into the curriculum. They get it, because the concept is grounded in humanity.

👇🏽This is only the beginning. What is more disappointing is the # of community members, Elders, knowledge keepers who were invited to support were also uninvited. How are we supposed to be advocating for building relationships when this is the opposite of building!

Okay, ON teacher friends. Its time to get loud. The Ontario government's last minute cancellation of the writing workshop disrespects educators, Elders and knowledge keepers. Let's let & know this isn't okay. Use

WHITE PEOPLE: Wondering what you can do in the reconciliation process? Follow the instructions in this tweet. I was one of teachers selected to be on this writing team.

Picked up a summer school supply job for today since my curriculum writing gig to add in TRC content was cancelled by Ont gov. My job today is literacy. Resisting by teaching the 94 Calls To Action. ✊🏽

Textbook companies are on board. Good publishers are on board. Teacher education programs are taking steps. Educators, unions, admins can make the choices to keep this work in the spotlight. To hire Indigenous colleagues and knowledge keepers.
