A parents letter to People for Education: Who is advocating for the kids?
Note: Blueprint for Canada is a shared platform for public education policy in Canada developed by parents, educators, and concerned citizens. It is understood that we cannot realistically expect every school board trustee candidate to support every position taken. An endorsement of the platform should therefore be considered to mean that the candidate supports the vast majority (80% or more) of these policy positions. Individual candidates may vary in their support of specific policy proposals, and we fully support their right to do so.
