Race and Black students in TDSB schools:

James, C.E. & Turner, T. (2017). Towards Race Equity In Education: The Schooling of Black Students in the Greater Toronto Area. Toronto, Ontario, Canada: York University.

From page 64 “Throughout the consultations community members, parents, students and educators welcomed the insights that the TDSB data provided, noting that the profile of Black students and in light of the recent spotlight on Black boysconfirmed for them that race plays a significant role in producing the unequal outcomes for Black students. They affirmed that the “web of stereotypes” (Howard, 2008, p. 966) operates to “racialize and marginalize these youth and structure their learning process, social opportunities, life changes, and educational outcomes” (James, 2011, p. 467).” Pages 68-79 include an extensive series of recommendations for the Ministry, school boards, the Black community and parents.
