Shame on our board of school trustees

Shame on our board of school trustees. After several years of closing community schools, cutting programs and gutting services to children (and adults), they are building a brand new school board office and giving themselves a whopping 20% raise.

Here’s an idea: let’s cut back the number of trustees to 5, rather than the present 9, (Vernon has 7) and use the savings to fund more learning resource and support time for special needs children in the classroom.

Here’s another thought: How about acting like “trustees” and start expressing outrage at the dismantling of public education.
