Simone Si RSW MSW for TDSB Trustee

Vote for Simone Si, M.S.W., R.S.W., for TDSB Trustee

I am the only candidate whose entire education and career has been in child and family services. I am not a politician. I am a registered master’s degree level social worker with a passion for child and family wellness. In the past four years, I have advocated for students’ and families’ needs at the TDSB, YRDSB, and PDSB. I am also a long-time Scarborough resident. My younger sister is a student at Albert Campbell Collegiate Institute. I have a stake in this community and only want to see every student have the opportunity to develop to their fullest potential.

I am here to serve you! Whether you are a parent, TDSB staff, or student, if you have an issue with the TDSB, please do not hesitate to contact me. I will personally return every phone call and email.

Statement on Ontario Health and Physical Education Curriculum

In response to misreporting by The Scarborough Mirror and insidetoronto.com falsely claiming that she is opposed to the new curriculum, TDSB Trustee Candidate Simone Si has issued the following statment in support of the new Ontario Health and Physical Education Curriculum:

“Many trustee candidates have been vocal about their opposition to the physical and health education curriculum but none have stated their support. So let me say it loudly and proudly: I support the curriculum. First of all it is not just a sex education curriculum. It is a health and physical education curriculum with many teachings about physical health and mental health. The mental health aspect was desperately missing in the past. The sex aspects teach children the proper names for their body parts, recognizing exploitative behaviours, safety in digital communications, respecting those with gender and sexual orientation differences, the importance of delaying sexual activity, the concept of consent and safe sex practices. I work with children and teens every day and believe me, no matter how well you think you have educated your kids and shielded them from the chaotic world outside, they are getting unhealthy and incorrect messages about sex all the time from their peers, the media and the internet. Children need factual information from safe adults in their lives such as their teachers and parents. It’s great that many parents want to be involved in their children’s sex education and they can use what their children learned in school to start discussions at home that’s personalized to each family’s own values.”

“Let’s have a dialogue about the questions and concerns and make sure that factual information about the curriculum is available to all parents in their preferred language.”

Important Issues at the TDSB

  • Increasing rates of depression and anxiety among children and youths: I will support funding and programs that support mental health for our students.
  • Increasing disparity for minority and lower income students: I will support equal opportunities for all students and special initiatives aimed at minority and lower income students.
  • Internal fighting between trustees and with TDSB staff: I promise to listen to and treat every person with respect and dignity.
  • Sex education curriculum: I will support evidence-based sex education with the goal of reducing risks for children.
  • Youth unemployment: I will support programs that will bridge education and work experience to give students the tools they need to succeed in the modern economy.
  • Grade 8 students must choose applied or academic streams before they have any experience with high school and are undecided about their career path. Students in the applied stream have fewer options in the future and are less likely to graduate: I will support ending the practice of dividing students in grade 9.
