Education is a human right. Everyone deserves inclusive and equitable quality education.
October 5th is World Teachers’ Day. This day is celebrated annually to recognize and honour all the hard work teachers do worldwide each and every day. Students with fetal alcohol spectrum disorder (FASD) face a number of challenges in the education system. Teachers and school staff play an important role in ensuring students with FASD succeed in school.
In honour of the International Day of Education, we created a contest to celebrate the work that school staff across Canada have done to support individuals with FASD. We asked Canadians to nominate those teachers, principals, bus drivers, and administrators who have gone above and beyond to help their students succeed. These are some of our favorite entries!
