Stephen Lecce, MPP for King-Vaughan, gave remarks as Minister of Education on February 17, 2022 at an ANCHOR event celebrating Black History Month in Vaughan with a new $300K investment to strengthen Black history learning in schools.
“Strengthening Black history in the classroom is part of our government’s plan to ensure the individuals we learn about and the lessons we teach students better reflect Canada’s diversity,” said Stephen Lecce, MPP for King-Vaughan. “As we mark Black History Month, we are expanding access to resources through Black-led partners including Vaughan based ANCHOR, that will help the next generation learn and celebrate the contributions and histories of Black Canadians — from Lincoln Alexander to Viola Desmond.”
