Urgent help needed, from Grade 8 or 7 (especially Grade 8) students and their parents!
In light of the Toronto District School Board (the TDSB)'s unreasonable admission policies for Specialized Programs (currently the Secondary Central Student Interest Programs) (impermissible considerations of race, gender, address, etc., unauthorized restriction on the application number for schools or programs per student, random lottery, etc.) and various other policies that violate students' fundamental human rights and freedoms, we, as citizens of the community, are to take legal action. We need help and support from Grade 8 or 7 (especially Grade 8) students and their parents.
Ontario Grade-8 students who want to apply for any TDSB Specialized Programs, whether or not residing in Toronto, please submit applications to the Secondary Central Student Interest Programs by November 25, 2022, 4 pm from https://www.tdsb.on.ca/High-School/Going-to-High-School/Secondary-Central-Student-Interest-Programs
Parents of students who are in Grade 8 and have submitted applications, or who are currently in Grade 7, if you would like to work with us to change the application process and admission policies, and/or fight for foundational social justice and/or public education, please contact us at:
Thank you very much.

Dear Ontario residents:
As you might have known, the Peel District School Board (PDSB) has implemented the Regional Learning Choice Programs (RLCPs) (Elementary and Secondary), and the Toronto District School Board (TDSB) has been conducting the Secondary Program Review (the "Review"), and has approved the Student Interest Programs Policy (the "Policy"). Both the PDSB's effective RLCPs and the TDSB's Policy set "interest"-based random selection for admissions into both elementary and secondary programs.
We can change the policies by ourselves. Read more …
