Over the past few weeks and months, our website has seen a rise in information requests for private education. This rise in inquiries is on trend with what is occurring throughout Canada as more and more private schools are seeing an increase in applicants. Below, I have outlined some of the differences and similarities between private and public school education.
Bill 115 is unfair. Pre-emptive law making denies the rights of employees "just in case." How can we inculcate the habits of democracy into our students when they observe and experience unreasonable restrictions on the rights of the very people who are charged with teaching them about fairness? What if teachers behaved like this government? Imagine children being told that they will not be allowed to seek permission to create a club because the school doesn't trust them to make the proper arrangements -- nor to go out for recess because they might misbehave. It would not take long for someone to shout, "That's not fair."
