Well, the “catholic” principals seems to do no better than OECTA in choosing their conference speakers. Expect continued further deterioration of the “catholic” school system. These are the folks that hire and promote teachers.
Fr Thomas Reese: pro- LGBT columnist for National catholic Reporter (they use the Catholic name against canon law rules banning them (ie. local bishop denied permission to use Catholic in title))
“Reese, a vocal critic of the 1992 Catechism of the Catholic Church, is the former editor of the Jesuit Magazine America, who was pressured to step down by the Vatican in 2005 for misrepresenting Catholic teaching on a number of issues, including same-sex marriage, homosexual priests, priestly celibacy, women’s ordination and offering Holy Communion to pro-abortion Catholic politicians”
Opening CPCO speaker is Andy Hargreaves. He is part of the three amigos of Ben Levin, Andy Hargreaves, Michael Fullan:
Just google Hargreaves Levin Fullan and lots of links come up; For Example:
Dr. Campbell joins Dr. Jean Clinton, Dr. Michael Fullan and Dr. Andy Hargreaves as the Premier Wynne’s key education advisors.
The folks that bring us EIE, sex ed, etc
This team is bringing Sex ed, EIE etc to “Catholic” schools
From the beginning, Dr. Fullan was viewed as an “OISE change theorist” who appeared scary to most classroom teachers. After completing his PhD in Sociology in 1969, he haunted the University of Toronto and was a PD Day “favourite” of principals right across Ontario. In the late 1980s, he joined with the Brit educator Dr. Andy Hargreaves at OISE to form the “British connection.” Together with Hargreaves, he published the What’s Worth Fighting For? pamphlet series. It was aimed at principals and teachers and preached “empowerment” with a blatant teacher union orientation.
In the 1990s, Fullan and Hargreaves promoted the “teacher empowerment” reform agenda. T
