Global News published this video item, entitled “Teacher who donned blackface for Halloween put on home assignment at Toronto school” – below is their description.

A teacher working at a Toronto school has been placed on home assignment after showing up to class wearing blackface makeup as part of a Halloween costume last week.

The school principal, in a letter to parents, said a student had alerted the vice principal that a white staff member was in blackface Friday, the last school day before Halloween, when staff and students typically dress up.

The incident is prompting calls for a system overhaul for the Toronto District School Board and a zero tolerance policy for anti-Black racism and discrimination. Caryn Lieberman reports.
