Minister Hunter made it clear that she wanted a report by early 2017 on the state of affairs in the education system especially on racism. She was polite but was not about to take any prisoners.

If the Education Minister sticks to her Jamaican roots then you can expect fireworks.

I do not know the Minister personally, but been hearing a few comments about the systemic racism in the education system in Ontario. I saw it upfront and personal in a programme I was part of there in the late 1990s.

We at Vision Newspaper frown on racism as it has no place in education. White folks have nothing over us. They use race to keep us in our places … but for how long we must ask?

Get educated and the sky is the limit.
