OPSBA statement regarding the OHRC Right to Read report


“OPSBA is committed to advocating for each and every student to have the supports and services that enable them to fully engage in learning and to be successful in school and in life. In its Right to Read report the Ontario Human Rights Commission (OHRC) has reinforced the critical importance of early reading to overall student success. OPSBA fully supports dedicated and predictable funding and continuing to utilize early intervention strategies and evidence-based research to inform instruction, especially as it relates to students with reading disabilities. OPSBA will continue to review the recommendations in the OHRC Right to Read report and work collaboratively with the Ministry of Education to support any curricular or structural changes that enable equity of access and outcomes for all students.”
