Dear Educators,
As you are surely aware, the past three years during the COVID-19 pandemic have been a sobering reminder that anti-Asian hate and other forms of racism and discrimination continue to plague the Canadian society. Data from Statistics Canada suggested a 301 percent surge in police-reported hate crimes targeting East and Southeast Asian Canadians from 2019 to 2020, and another 16 percent increase from 2020 to 2021.
As recommended by the East and Southeast Asian communities and education scholars, having an inclusive curriculum in our schools plays an essential role in combatting the ignorance that leads to these recurrent surges in anti-Asian racism.
The following survey is part of a study to gauge the extent to which East and Southeast Asian Canadian experiences are included in the Ontario curriculum for Grades 7-12. It is intended for Grades 7-12 teachers, school administrators, and school board senior staff. Your participation is extremely valuable in helping to understand educators’ perspectives and concerns, identify barriers to implementing an inclusive curriculum, and explore the needed resources and support for curriculum development and delivery that promote equity, diversity, and inclusion.
This survey is administered by the CPAC Institute, a non-profit organization that endeavours to facilitate understanding and address systemic barriers to equity, diversity and inclusion in Canadian society.
Your responses are completely anonymous, and only researchers involved in the study will have access to the data collected.
