TDSB hold a public press conference to apologize for their role in the Hijab Hoax.

TDSB chose to prematurely hold a public press conference featuring the 11 year old girl who made what turned out to be false allegations about a stranger cutting her hijab on her walk to school. TDSB failed in its primary responsibility to protect the child and instead chose to feature her and her 9 year old brother in front of a large group of media who then inundated her and her 9 year old brother with questions and commentary. TDSB needs to reaffirm its commitment to protect the interests of children above all else, above the Board's political agenda, above the interests of parents, above the interests of interest groups, above the interests of staff and unions and above the interests of any other party such as media etc. TDSB further needs to examine the causes for their lack of judgement and to identify any possible conflicts in their current approach that have contributed to poor outcomes for children and share their findings with the public via public press conference.
