Former school review chief agrees changes needed to hub school model

The man who helped shape the current rules for hub schools in Nova Scotia  has some proposals that would dramatically change how they would be funded.

Bob Fowler crisscrossed the province talking to Nova Scotians about community school models throughout the winter in 2014.  His report later that summer formed the basis for the current criteria being used by school boards to evaluate hub schools.

Now Fowler has some different ideas.  One suggestion is that boards transfer ownership of some schools to communities and become tenants in those spaces, he said Friday..

And he’s glad Education Minister Karen Casey wants to take another look at the current hub school model.
