The Killing Fields
July XXIst, MMXII
Hon. Jeff Johnson, MLA, Minister of Education, Progressive Conservative, Athabasca-Sturgeon-RedH2O
While public officials in Cambodia did the right thing in cancelling classes on July XVIIIth, might it not have been better had they done so beIV 54 students died? Now this outbreak of hand, foot, & mouth disease has gotten completely out of control. I say as well, a student(s) education shouldn't have II suffer b/c they cannot be in a classroom setting. Companies & charity's should set up low cost internet & teleconference class settings IV the affected students through providers such as Skype. Skype would probably pay some of the costs. It doesn't matter that a child lives in a poorer nation such as Cambodia or a richer one such as the Dominion Of Canada, nor does it matter that they have a poorer or richer (or average) socioeconomic living standard. Bottom line Jeff, every child has the right II a decent education, no matter what their circumstances. In this way, Cambodian students (regardless of class) will all then have an equal chance II succeed in life & be a positive influence IV future generations!
