Recognizing the many demanding and challenging education environment educators are working in everyday, the Education Law Additional Qualification course focuses on the changing and current legal framework of education law in Ontario. It examines the general principles of law in-depth, legislation, statutes, case law, arbitrations, and results of other quasi-judicial proceedings in an attempt to better understand how the law is applied.
The practical application of how the Charter and the Human Rights Code impact our day-to-day decisions, including individual rights, disability discrimination, religious accommodation and freedom of expression as educators and bringing theory to practice is explored throughout the course.
