Chinese children hold year-long strike

Chinese children carried out a year-long strike when the Victoria School Board threatened to teach them in segregated schools. The CCBA founded an Anti-Segregation Association that challenged the school board’s decision. In August 1923, the school board allowed Chinese students to return to their schools, except for 17 students who needed assistance with their English.
