Ontario human rights code  Sec 19  These three things had to be taken into consideration b4 anything was documented in the equity and inclusive education strategy in 2009  This task wasn’t easy  3 things are stressed in this strategy o 1. Diversity  “Wide range of qualities within a group; ethnicity, gender, culture, gender identity, language, intellectual ability, race, religion, sex, sexual orientation, socio economic status, ancestry “ o 2. Equity  “state of fair inclusive and respectful treatment of all ppl”  “students see themselves reflected in their curriculum, physical surroundings and where diversity is honoured and all students are respected”  This language is quite idealistic  All school boards are to have this strategy implemented by 2012
