Featuring a Key Note Address by Rick Moore. Rick Moore is a North Vancouver father who won a landmark court case that ruled the North Vancouver School District discriminated against his dyslexic son. At the heart of the case was what responsibility the school system bears to help students with special needs succeed. Rick and his family spent fifteen (15!) years going through legal process in order to set this important precedent.

Lindsay Waddell, Senior Associate at Moore Edgar Lyster – “Human Rights In The Public Education System”
