A Second Tier in Public System

Letter to the Editor, April 14, 2009

Re: Premier defends school shopping with ministry data, April 8

I applaud People for Education for continuing to defend public education. The idea of a public school website with a shopping bag is repugnant. The motive for listing socio-economic breakdowns is suspect and likely to lead to further two-tieredness, which is already evident from the widening gap as a result of fundraising by individual schools. And I thought the Harris days were gone.
