Critical Transitions

'Critical Transitions' is a compilation of projects that are actively examining and disrupting patterns of systemic ableism, anti-Black racism, and the socio-cultural reproduction of inequity through schooling. This site is a repository of research reports and academic articles. It also features new and upcoming projects that explore how schools respond to the perception of ability, how students are organized into programming opportunities and the implications on their futures. Drawing on the field of Disability Studies in Education, these studies highlight the social construction of disability and the very real material implications of these constructions in schooling. This site is intended for educators, education practitioners and academics who are looking for support in their promotion of social justice and equity in schools.

Support for this work comes from the Canada Research Chair in Inclusion, Disability and Education, the Social Science and Humanities Research Council as well as through partnerships with the Toronto District School Board and York University.
