Students Develop Anti-Classism Campaign (Video)


Keswick, ON – Students at Jersey P.S. and Keswick H.S. have launched a campaign to raise awareness and address stereotypes around classism.
Following learning and conversations about issues of equity and classism, the students designed a series of posters that will be distributed to schools in York Region District School Board.
“There’s a lot of stereotypes and a lot of labels and a lot of different words revolving around privilege. We have to strip those stereotypes and look deeper because it’s not always what it looks like,” said Rachel, a student at Keswick H.S.
“I’m most proud of the fact that we are actually getting somewhere and we are actually doing something. I definitely want people to think that we want to stop this. We want to make it better for everyone,” said Paris, a student at Keswick H.S.

York Region District School Board is the third largest school district in Ontario with over 127,000 students in 180 elementary schools and 33 secondary schools. York Region students consistently perform above average in provincial testing and the Board is one of the top achievers in Ontario.
