As school board trustees we will
advocate for the following:
  • Katharine Birbalsingh (aka: "Britain's Strictest Headmistress") has created what may well be the gold standard in child education. Her school has achieved spectacular success working with children from disadvantaged backgrounds. As school board trustees we owe it our children to look at these and other unconventional methods to assess what makes sense for Canadian public schools.
  • We will work to create a school culture which teaches children gratitude and not resentment. And they go on to do amazing things!
  • We will defend the enforcement of disciplinary measures in schools in a way that is fair, consistent and thus predictable. Such measures are sometimes perceived as “wrong” because they might lead to different outcomes between identity groups. We believe that kids benefit from a structured, disciplined environment, and a child’s identity markers should not influence the way his or her errors or misbehaviours are handled. Parents... be assured we will take your children's safety at school seriously.
