Local News: School board to collect racial data Black Habits Articles The Toronto District School Board has approved a proposal to survey its students about their racial backgrounds.

The survey will also ask the students about their family lives, and whether they have disabilities.

Trustee Bruce Davis described the survey, which was approved at a school board meeting Tuesday evening, as a mini-census that will help the board better serve its students.

"This whole thing is about making things better for children," Davis said. "We have got to find out if there are problems based on a student's background, or are there systemic barriers that we need to overcome.

"We need this information so we can identify problems and then also so that we can measure our progress."

Davis said participation in the survey will be voluntary
