Minister could use a lesson
Minister of Education Laurel Broten's letter No victory in extra lap (April 18) demonstrates a stunning lack of respect for Ontario secondary students, their parents, teachers and education workers, who have real concerns about the potentially devastating effects on a 34-credit cap.
If Broten is sincere when she says, "I look forward to working with students, teachers and parents to continue to improve Ontario's public education," then I would suggest that she consider visiting programs like Bealart here in London. She might engage in a genuine and meaningful dialogue about the real impact that these cuts will have.
