Ontario Human Rights Commission: Right to Read Public Inquiry

The Right to Read inquiry is reaching out and hearing from parents, students and educators across the province about their experiences, challenges and concerns arising from their experience in Ontario’s public education system.

The inquiry is also assessing whether school boards use scientific evidence-based approaches to meet students’ right to read. The OHRC will assess school boards against five benchmarks that are part of an effective systematic approach to teaching all students to read:

  • Universal design for learning (UDL)
  • Mandatory early screening
  • Reading intervention programs
  • Effective accommodation
  • Psycho-educational assessments (if required).
Students, parents & educators are asked to provide their feedback about their experience with reading disabilities in public schools as part of the Ontario Human Rights Commission's Right to Read Inquiry.

A public hearing will be in Ottawa on March 10, 2020, at the Nepean Sportsplex:

1701 Woodroffe Avenue, Nepean, ON, K2G 1W2
Registration begins at 5:30 p.m.
Public hearing: 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.
Notify the OHRC about accommodation needs by: February 25, 2020
