On April 28, 2020, the Minister of Education appointed Arleen Huggins to conduct an investigation of the Peel District School Board (PDSB) to examine the PDSB’s compliance with the Minister’s 27 binding Directions issued on March 13, 2020, aimed at dismantling structures within the PDSB that perpetuate racism, and in particular, anti-Black racism, and on reforming culture. The investigation is now complete and the Minister of Education has released the report. To view the report in its entirety, please click here.
This is the latest workplace investigation that Ms. Huggins has been asked to conduct, many of which have involved important issues of anti-Black racism, diversity and public policy, such as the Independent External Review of Complex Cases under the Ontario Public Service’s Workplace Discrimination and Harassment Policy through an anti-racism lens, completed in 2018.
