Unelected School Board

NDP Education Critic Lorraine Michael

NDP Education Critic Lorraine Michael (MHA, St. John’s East-Quidi Vidi) says government must act to prevent the unelected school board closing schools. Michael says parents, students, and school councils have been outspoken in their opposition but the board is refusing to pay attention.

 

Holy Cross JHS is an important neighbourhood school with programs, community partnerships and extra-curricular activities designed to meet the particular needs of the inner city students who attend it. The appointed, unelected English School Board trustees have proposed to close down Holy Cross Junior High School.
