Trustees failing students

The Rainbow District School Board and a number of other boards across Ontario are in the process of rationalization studies.

It is apparent that these rationalizations are the result of policies the Liberal Party, which you support, implemented through the Ontario government and the Ministry of Education. Most of the studies recommend closure of a number of schools, primarily in small communities. Numerous post-audits of such closures have proven the results to be severely diminished schooling opportunities for thousands of students, ripping the heart out of small communities and, in the long run, increased costs.

There has never been a mandate for this or even mention of it at election time. Trustees, you were elected to represent your constituents and this appears to be in direct conflict with the aspirations of most of those constituents.
