How is it that one school system cannot even afford to buy art supplies, and the other can afford to put kids on VIA Rail?
When the public education system was founded in 1871, it was basically the protestant and the catholic systems. Protestant was the dominate because of the predominately English (British) decent of most Ontarians, but both were treated equally for funding purposes. Even in the last 20 years that I remember, the catholic system had better books, better class choices, smaller class sizes. What was to be a fair and equitable system has become a two-tiered education system.
I am not advocating that the Catholic board should lose funding, or singling them out because of religion, however I am advocating that both streams be funded equally. Fairness, something that McNutty promised, and yet all we get is a larger nose.
