Access to English schools

I attended a joint press conference yesterday, at my old elementary school in Montreal – Nesbitt School.

It was a little odd to go back there as a school board commissioner.  I started in that school 40 years ago.  My Grandmother started in that school over 100 years ago.  Yes, I think we can safely say that my family has had a hand in building this city and has a real and long term stake in English education here.

The press conference was well put together and the solidarity amongst the boards was very clear.  A unified political voice – this is what school boards claim to represent for the English speaking community – and this is what we saw yesterday.
