Dear Dave:

Ward D Edmonton Public School Board Trustee Trisha Estabrooks, B. A. (Honours), B. Journ. is very fair & nuanced in her call for private schools to lose all public funding. But the Madam Trustee, I should point out that to be completely equitable, should call also for the defunding of all public dollars for Catholic education, as well as homeschooling, charter schools, correspondence, tutoring, & any other private option. Singling out the private schools for defunding alone seems a tad unjust. She also has to respect that some private options are cheaper than the public system & actually do a better job per student with less dollars.

Trisha Was A Superb CBC Journalist,

  1. Abolish the Catholic School Divisions? What a good idea.

    1. I don't say abolish them, I just say based on Madam Trustee Estabrooks statement tat they should be defunded.
