Education Begins The Day You Are Born
March XIIIth, MMXII
Hon. Thomas Lukaszuk, MLA, Minister of Education, Progressive Conservative, Edmonton-Castledowns
I find it funny that Grant MacEwan University (nee College) is talking about the idea of "think local, live local" with its one sustainable campus policy. This policy degradates against students who live in the west end who might want II study arts & cannot afford the travel & expense of going downtown or perhaps taking classes out of the MacEwan South Campus (nee Millwoods Campus).
Yes many schools are consolidating & moving things II one site. But as a proud June MCMXCVII (1997) Management Studies Diploma Management Concentration graduate of MacEwan, I cannot see the logic here. Instead of making education more accessible, MacEwan's President & Board are making it more remote & more difficult II access IV students who might prefer II attend a satellite campus & be intimidated at perhaps attending the Main Downtown MacEwan Campus.
