Canadian teachers instructed on how to combat ‘Islamophobia’

New guide for teachers encourages field trips to mosques as part of anti-Islamophobia education.

A new teacher’s guide produced by the Canadian Human Rights Commission was launched last week in Canada, instructing Canadian teachers to actively combat views and comments it views as “Islamophobic.”

The new guide, entitled “Helping Students Deal With Trauma Related to Geopolitical Violence & Islamophobia,” was produced by the CHRC in conjunction with the National Council of Canadian Muslims and the Islamic Social Services Association.

The purpose of the new guide, say its producers, is to “help Canadian teachers better understand and provide support to students living with the effects of geopolitical violence and Islamophobia” and to “create safer and more inclusive spaces for Canadian Muslim students.”
