Right To Read Inquiry

On February 28th, the Ontario Human Rights Commission (OHRC) released their right to read inquiry. Taken from the OHRC Right to Read Webpage, “The OHRC launched its Right to Read public inquiry in October 2019, concerned that Ontario’s public education system was failing to meet the needs of students with reading disabilities. One of the inquiry’s goals was to find out if these students had meaningful access to education as required by the Ontario Human Rights Code.” 

The report provides a number of recommendations to help engage students’ right to read which can be found, summarized, at the following link: https://www.ohrc.on.ca/en/right-to-read-inquiry-report/appendix-1-list-recommendations.

Please stay tuned for more information about this landmark report and keep your eye on Social Media and the News for how this will impact you as an individual or family affected by a reading disability.
