The Coast - - COVER STORY -

Af­ter what The Coast called a “scathing” re­port from con­sul­tant Avis Glaze, ed­u­ca­tion min­is­ter Zach Churchill made the rec­om­men­da­tion to dis­solve the prov­ince’s school boards (mi­nus the Fran­co­phone one) in favour of one, big ol’ ad­vi­sory coun­cil for all of Nova Sco­tia’s 48,000 stu­dents. On March 31 we bid farewell to the 104 school board trustees elected by their com­mu­ni­ties and in an awk­ward turn of events, Hal­i­fax hosted the Cana­dian School Boards As­so­ci­a­tion’s an­nual con­fer­ence four months later.
