The Ontario school curriculum: A critical overview.

Published 2005 .
Written in English.

About the Book

Educational reforms have been introduced by the Ontario government since 1995, including a new standardized curriculum. This thesis examines the Ontario elementary curriculum for what and whose knowledge is being legitimized in schools. Using a critical anti-racism perspective, this study interrogates racialized power relations. A combined content and critical discourse analysis explores how the language of the curriculum is exclusionary, how Eurocentricism and Whiteness are propagated through the content, and how the history and knowledge of racial minorities is rendered inconsequential. This study finds that White bodies are privileged in schools while racialized bodies are disempowered and thus disadvantaged. Recommendations for curriculum reform are made, alongside broader action strategies for the inclusivity and empowerment of all students.
