The vice-principal of Mayfield Secondary School in Caledon is expected to find out his fate today.
Lionel Klotz was sent home after complaints from students, staff and the public about him dressing up for Halloween at the school as Mr. T, the TV show charecter from the 80's.
The get-up included Klotz being in black-face.
The director of education for the Peel District School Board, Tony Pontes has issued a statement apologizing "for the hurt caused by this incident."
“Our board does not condone or tolerate actions of this type," he says in the statement.
Blackface dates back to the 19th century when actors would put face paint on to create a stereotyped caricature of a black person.
A photo sent to our colleagues at CP24 shows a man with blackface in a Mr. T costume.
Pontes says the board has taken immediate action to investigate the incident.
“This incident is a reminder to us that our good work around equity and inclusion is never done and that we must continue to educate ourselves, our staff and students around racism, discrimination and stereotyping.”
The board has not confirmed what displinary action could be taken.
