Saison 12

10. Racism in Schools

WEB AVAILABILITY :  10 hours and 30 minutes  10 h and 30 min

A problem with a teacher in one Montreal High School has put a spotlight on racism in all our schools. The long-serving teacher was fired after a YouTube video showed him repeatedly using the n-word in class. Other students accused of him of making questionable racial comments for decades. We find out if this is an isolated incident or if there is a systemic problem in our schools when it comes to dealing with issues regarding race.
