Black Lives Matter Toronto wants to eliminate the School Resource Officer Program, which stations uniformed officers in Toronto-area schools, as part of six changes targeting anti-black racism in the education system.
Officers have been stationed at schools since 2008, which was funded by a federal grant.
The Toronto group is demanding six specific changes to the primary and secondary education systems in the Greater Toronto Area, including implementing anti-black racism training at all levels of Toronto-area school boards and creating an advisory board of black parents.
Damn right, stick it to the man! Through successive elections at all levels of government the people of Toronto have spoken and expressed their desire to mirror the Baltimore’s and Detroit’s of the world. I wish them to achieve this desire, in abundance.
