An Educator's Guide to Human Rights, Second Edition
Availability: In Stock
$90.00
Description
This book provides a straightforward guide to human rights law, explaining how it works within the framework of the Canadian education system. The authors set out clear definitions of what discrimination is and the areas where it can occur, covering such topics as religion, family status, special needs students, discipline, hiring policies, absenteeism and more. This resource helps educators to recognize and avoid human rights complaints and deal with them should they arise. This second edition is completely revised and updated including material on:
  • How revisions to the Ontario Human Rights Code have changed the way complaints are handled, providing coverage of the new enforcement provisions of the Act
  • How recent amendments to the Education Act have altered the mandatory nature of student discipline to ensure certain segments of the student population are treated fairly
  • How case law on accommodation in the workplace has changed the way the rights of individuals and the cost of accommodation are balanced
  • Recent court decisions dealing with human rights
  • New challenges facing educators such as cyberbullying
