The Silent Election
9/18/2012 1:08:00 AM
Yesterday, in an attempt to balance the editorial on the firing of school-teacher Lynden Dorval, I offered equal time to anyone who wanted to defend his termination. Instead I got more mail offering support and decrying his firing, but there was one letter, from Paul, who says Dorval broke the rules so he should be fired. Paul says if he disagreed with the policy he should have quit and run for a seat on the school board. Speaking of which, you need to see the video of last week’s school board meeting. Hear from teachers about what really goes on inside Ross Sheppard High School. It may also make you wonder why the education minister doesn’t step in and resolve some questions. The video only a few minutes long and you may be shocked at what other educators revealed to the board. Ross Shep parents will especially want to hear the opinions of the third speaker.
Start watching at 11:00 and watch till the end. It's just a few minutes.
Just one more reason to ensure that next time, October 21st, 2013, the voting for school trustees is not known as the “silent election” of people we may know little about. Just to be clear, the EPSB wants to make sure you know the trustees did not fire Dorval. We understand that, but they are the policy makers, and we'll wait to see what they decide about the no-zero policy and what else they stand for when it comes to educating our children. Let me know what you think.
