Editor: I contacted the English school board so I can speak at the public meeting in Summerside on December 17, 2013. I had no response.
Students are allowed to pass Grade 12 without studying. They just have to show up for class. There is no provincial ombudsman to investigate the practice of passing students from one grade to the next.
The Ghiz government won’t hold school board elections until the next provincial election. Now the Ghiz government is delaying the provincial election until 2016.
The Ghiz government changed the Election Act to maintain the two-party system. P.E.I. has no system of recalling politicians. The commission that determines MLAs salaries is fully aware that the Liberals changed the Election Act to require more signatures for a candidate to run in an election yet allowed MLAs a pay raise. Island students score the lowest in Canada.
I can’t speak at a public meeting to question the delay in school board elections or the Ghiz government reneging on its promise for a provincial ombudsman.
