South Stormont ON – I believe in being accountable for my words, actions and choices. This is why I post my real and full name with my letters. Why don’t some others?
The accountability in education starts with the individual taxpayers. We elect trustees to provide oversight and accountability for the school boards. To answer a question that was posed to me from Eric, the boards are offering full day kindergarten programs above what the province pays for because the Trustees voted to approve the budget put forward by the board administrators.
The province doesn’t control that. The province doesn’t detail where each dime and nickel is to be spent by boards. It is up to the Trustees to ensure our tax dollars are invested properly.
I am focused on getting positive results. That is why I get involved. If you see something that needs work then roll up your sleeves and help. That is how Canada was built and specifically our area.
If each of us gave 1 hour per week to community service it would mean over 50 000 hours per week within the SD&G area. What positive results could we get then?
Proud to Serve
