Liz Sandals making 'important announcement' about TDSB

Education Minister Liz Sandals is expected to make "an important announcement" about the city's school board this afternoon.

Sandals will speak to the media at Queen’s Park at 1 p.m. ET.

The announcement comes about a week after a retiring school trustee urged the minister and Premier Kathleen Wynne to get involved in a clash involving leaders at the Toronto District School Board.
