Race Relations: New Perspectives, New Delivery Systems for Education. Summary and Recommendations Section of the Proceedings of the Conference on Race Relations and Education (Toronto, Ontario, Canada, January 28-29, 1982).
Ontario Human Rights Commission, Toronto.
The Race Relations Division of the Ontario (Canada) Human Rights Commission states its primary goal as that of helping the institutional sector of the society to deal with problems of racism and racial discrimination. In order to forward the belief that responsibility for promoting race relations lies with key government agencies and institutions in Ontario society, a conference was held in January 1982, to discuss the promotion of racial harmony and equality within educational systems. This report summarizes the content of the conference. Five major issues are reviewed: (1) assessing and streaming of immigrant and visible minority students; (2) how curriculum can promote positive race relations; (3) developing effective race relations programs for students and teachers; (4) augmenting good school-community relations in a multiracial society; and (5) developing and implementing race relations policies. Conference participants' recommendations are outlined. (GC)
