Restoration Budget Letter

unnamed

Members,

At the Board meeting tonight I had the great hounor of representing all you in an historic event. The five partner groups in the District, CUPE, STA, COPACS, the Saanich Board of Education, and the WESANEC School Board jointly signed thisRestoration Budget Letter that was sent to the Minister of Education and to the Media. We have all done similar things independently but to my knowledge this is the first time we have all collaboratively worked on such an initiative and then signed a letter to the ministry together as one.

Chair Victoria Martin is scheduled to be interviewed on CFAX 1070 at 7:30 tomorrowmorning and CBC radio Friday between 9:15 and 10 am. Please also look for articles in the Times Colonist over the next couple of days.

The idea behind this is to raise awareness of the chronic under funding of public education in BC and in get people talking about what we value as a society. I don’t know if it will work or if it will bring any relief to the ongoing funding problem but we must keep trying.
