This Is What It's Like to Be a Black Teacher in Ontario

The Ontario Alliance of Black School Educators set out to complete the first-ever comprehensive survey of black teachers in the province, specifically the racism they face.

Racialized people make up just 13 percent of the province's 76,030 secondary school teachers and 129,105 elementary school and kindergarten teachers. The survey was only able to reach 148 of them, but the insight they were able to provide is shocking to those who have no idea what it's really like to be a black teacher. The comments really speak for themselves, so ByBlacks.com has gone through the 72-page report and picked out the most revealing ones.
