Overage/Underage The Divine Town Of Beaumont
Jasper Place Public Library Terminal #XVII
April XXth, MMX
Hon. David G. Hancock, QC, MLA
Minister of Education,
Progressive Conservative, Edmonton-Whitemud
It seems II me David that with the 600 or more overage in the student population of Beaumont, the Government of Alberta & Edmonton Public should give gasoline vouchers &/or discounted Yellow Bus Passes to truck kids into the unfilled schools in Wards E, G, H, & I. This would at least temporarily bring an increased cash flow. It would also allow the Edmonton Public Board several more years of higher daily revenues, thus necessitating for less than the 76 potential closed schools to be assessed &./or considered for the MMX/MMXI & future years forward chopping block.
I know its a short term David, but according II the Edmonton Journal's Illustrious & Award Winning Education Reportage source, Mrs. Sarah O'Donnell, the Beaumont division is beyond bursting at the seams. So the idea makes great sense.
