Report: Naming systemic racism, Acknowledging complicity, & commitment to action: Anti-Asian racism

Reid, M., & Eizadirad, A. (2023). Naming systemic racism, Acknowledging complicity, and a commitment to action: Anti-Asian racism in the York Region District School Board. York Region District School Board.


Executive summary:

This research study provided a forum for Asian members in the York Region District School Board (YRDSB) to share their lived realities and express their concerns. It was guided by a key question:


What are the lived experiences of Asian identifying students, educators, community members, and staff in YRDSB?


The objective was to listen to participants’ lived realities in order to:

● amplify the voices of Asian educators, students, staff, and community members across YRDSB;

● legitimize struggles, barriers, discrimination, and racism experienced by Asian members of YRDSB;

● create more equitable and inclusive school environments through commitments to action based on existing gaps identified; and

● identify systemic barriers faced by Asian students, educators, staff, and community members, envisioning the elimination of these pervasive obstacles through a series of recommendations.
