Masks, different opinions and controversy

Trustees from the Toronto District School Board (TDSB) and toronto Catholic District School Board (TCDSB) have formally requested that the province suspend the decision indefinitely due to concerns about the potential spread of Covid-19 when students return to school after the March Break.

Lecce, via racist language from text accompanying math curriculum. But it’s controversy

Controversy, disbelief and confusion. One can describe with these three words the reaction generated by the removal by the Ontario government of a section of the mathematics curriculum that makes “reference to racism and colonialism”.
