Do you support revising TDSB Policy P042 (Appropriate Dress) so that it aligns with equity and human rights, and so that it incorporates greater opportunity for student voice in dress code development, review, and revision?

I 100% support the alignment of TDSB Policy P042 to be aligned with the Equity, Human Rights, and Gender-Based Violence Prevention Policies, of the TDSB.  I believe it is important for student voices to be centered in all discussions related to this very important conversation. As a former TDSB employee, and current post-secondary administrative leader I understand the importance of ongoing and constant advocacy related to diversity, equity, and inclusion.  Revising P042 is an important step in creating more inclusive school policies for all students, as the current P042 leaves room for racialized students, the continuum of gender identities, and the continuum of gender expressions to be disproportionately negatively impacted and targeted.
