What’s under a rock?
I often walk on the beach with my boys when the tides are out and we look at all the detritus left by the outgoing tide. Sometime they will turn over a rock and all the myriad little creatures will scuttle for shelter from the harsh sunlight.
Conservative MLA and Education Critic Steven Myers has done us all a service by turning over the rock and revealing the truth about the school closure process. It was orchestrated from the very top and there was collusion between deputy Education minister Susan Willis, Premier Wade MacLauchlan, Education Minister Doug Currie and the PSB’s director Parker Grimmer to secure the desired outcome. Their outcome: close small rural schools.
While many of us that were involved in this “process” suspected this may be the case, the truth in the harsh light of day is sobering and disappointing. This kind of inbred policy making with the obligatory public input “dog and pony” show does not serve Islanders well. It does not produce a first class education system and it does a disservice to our children and the future of the Island.
Shame on you for wasting taxpayers’ time and money. Shame of you for letting our children down.
Election 2019, time for a change. Richard Toms,
