Standing up for inclusion
VANCOUVER – The following is a statement from Minister of Education Rob Fleming, B.C. Teachers’ Federation, B.C. School Superintendents’ Association, B.C. School Trustees’ Association, B.C. Principals and Vice-Principals’ Association, B.C. Association of School Business Officials, Federation of Independent School Associations and B.C. Confederation of Parent Advisory Councils:

“We believe that all schools in our province, public and independent, must be spaces that are safe, acceptable, respectful, and welcoming for all students, regardless of their sexual orientation, gender identity, race, religion or background. There is no room for discrimination in B.C. schools.

“As provincial education partners, we are unified in this commitment. It is important that we all stand up and together to support inclusive-learning environments. Our goal as teachers, administrators, support staff, trustees and parents is to create learning environments where all students can thrive and live authentic lives.”
