School caretakers forced to come clean with their biases


Starting Tuesday, all lead caretakers at the York Region District School Board (YRDSB) will spend one day learning how to be more diverse and inclusive when they clean their schools. A description provided by a board staffer who contacted me about this mishegos (Yiddish for "nonsense") notes that "deep diversity" training will teach participants how to "detect, name and reduce" their "unconscious bias" and to understand how "stereotypes, prejudice and discrimination are a combined result of history, socialization as well as brain processes."
