This very liberal catholic principal ran an OCSB catholic school with less than 50% of the kids even nominally Catholic.
This was his scathing critique. Please read and share!:
He has written more, with some interesting questions:
My daughter was supposed to be entering JK in the Fall and we’ve chosen not to enrol her, because 36 kids stuffed into a play-based program with limited resources and objects being thrown at the teacher’s head is not my idea of a good learning environment for ANY child. It fills me with sadness that as a public school teacher I don’t feel safe enrolling my own child in my local public school.
How are we served by a trustee system where local representatives are part-time at best and totally dependant on school board staff for the information they need to make decisions that affect thousands of children?
Do the rights of the student really come first in a system where hiring is done based on how many years you have existed on a seniority list?
How are we served by school board superintendents who are not accountable to anyone and have the ultimate authority over everything that matters to children in our schools? In a public school system, why are these people so far removed from public scrutiny?
