I encourage Cowichan Valley communities to support the Cowichan Valley board of education in its efforts to restore services lost to our students during the past decade.
Public education in this district and across the province is in the red. There is an education deficit.
This board has provided a solution, one that supports the district’s strategic plan. It would put our students’ education back in the black, and truly balance the budget.
During the past six years, when I served as a trustee, the board sent letters to the minister of education, the premier, and others, outlining concerns about budget constraints and underfunding.
The replies, if any, weren’t helpful.
