What's Behind the Funding Crisis in Education - by Dr. Paul Bennett (December 11, 2010)

Great questions raised by Dr. Bennett in Saturday's Chronicle Herald.  If you are following the news coverage and online comments / responses to news coverage the overwhelming majority of comments are critical of School Boards and the Nova Scotia School Boards Association's failure to consider cuts to administration, before threatening schools and classrooms with cuts.

Look at our main (Home) page - that's exactly what we've been saying since the Strait Regional School Board threatened three schools with closure in the Spring of 2010.  It is not about saving schools at all costs - it is about demonstrating a commitment to good governance and leading by example - demonstrate cost effective administration then talk to us about cuts to our schools and classrooms...

Please take a look at Dr. Bennett's article and come back to let us know what you think in the Community Voice section.
