The Falconer Report on our Schools/Ontario
« on: January 10, 2008, 07:17:48 PM »
"Ladies and gentlemen, nothing could be further from the truth than that this is a problem involving the black kids at Jane [Street] and Finch [Avenue]," he said Thursday as the report was officially released."That's simply an utter, specious myth."The report was scheduled for release Monday, but advance excerpts were obtained by many media outlets, hastening its release.

The report itself hasn't been read by Wynne, yet she doesn't like parts of it already. I'd love to see the report, I heard it goes to the heart of the Harris regime's total gutting. Falconer has some very good common sense things to say that is already causing trustees to hate it, but hopefully it might get the administrators to pull their heads out of their asses.

Wow and this is how the adults behave! Hint, Hint.

To add:

"This is new information we didn't have when we voted," said Matlow, who added he wonders how trustees can approve a project with an estimated $350,000 start-up cost when the board faces a looming $41 million deficit.


Lord but having your ducks in a row is the usual path, no? Such an appalling lack of common sense, it boggles.

This whole thing seems like such a strange concept.

Yes and the incompetency is not being named. Which one would think would be the starting point. The entire 'process' has been tainted from the get-go.

How they didn't realize McGuinty would not fund it BEFORE the vote is even more bizarre. So we have incompetency as well as underlying and deep racism/sexism amongst the deciders. And they are the leaders/educators?
