Toronto District School Board
The TDSB loves the idea of using the Che Guevara method to "increase literacy". Because simply murdering a lot of illiterate peasants and inconvenient opponents is the way to do it! Eh?

TORONTO – A page dedicated to the teaching of Ernesto ‘Che’ Guevara as a hero of Latin American literacy has been taken down by the Toronto District School Board (TDSB) after complaints.
Guevara, an infamous revolutionary figure who helped institute regime change in Cuba along with Fidel Castro, was being used as part of a resource to teach young Toronto students about the importance of literacy – though making no mention of his alleged crimes.
According to the resource guide, posted publicly on the Toronto District School Board (TDSB) website until Thursday, Che Guevara was “a leader in Latin America,” who was “saddened by how poor people were wherever he visited,” and “decided that he would give all his time and energy to work to change that.”
