The Summer Series with Jason To The Staffroom Podcast with Chey & Pav

In the first episode of The Staffroom Podcast Summer Series, Chey and Pav talk to Jason To, a Secondary Math & Academic Pathways Coordinator for the Toronto District School Board in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The Dynamic Duo talks to Jason about Destreaming, or De-tracking, in High School, and the relationships between streaming and anti-racist education, particularly towards Black and Indigenous students of colour.  A phenomenal conversation to get us thinking further about the impacts of streaming on the education system as it exists today, and what we need to do as educators to dismantle the expectations to create new norms for the students that we teach.  Here's how you can get in touch with Jason: Twitter: @Jason_To Blog: Stay connected with Chey and Pav!
