Review of systemic racism in education

YCAO and the Yukon First Nation Education Directorate (YFNED) are working together to review racism in education.

The goals of the review are to: 

                    Look at how racism impacts Indigenous and other students of colour.

                    Understand how students, parents, and communities experience                            racism.

                    See if students in Whitehorse and the communities experience the                        same type of racism.

YCAO conducted a review focused on the policies, communication, and response of the Departments of Education and Health and Social Services in the wake of a criminal conviction of sexual interference and sexual assault by an Educational Assistant at Hidden Valley Elementary School in 2019.
