Questionnaire Response

Why did you decide to run in the 2014 School Board Election?

My reasons to run this year are the same as in previous years. I believe that when 50% of the students either do not graduate or are unprepared for a post secondary education, we have failed our children. What other profession or business could exist if 50% of the time they did not deliver a positive result? Charter schools in the U.S. have proven that children, even the poorest of the poor from the most disadvantaged situations, can graduate, when the system is geared for success.

What experience will you bring to compliment your role as School Trustee?

I have 2 kids in the Louis Riel School Division and see first hand where there can and should be improvements.

What are some issues that you would like to stand for in your role as School Trustee, and why are these issues important to you?

When 50% of the students either do not graduate or are unprepared for a post secondary education...THERE IS NOT ONE POLICY OR PERSON that would not benefit from a critical review. The ultimate goal should be to graduate all students with fundamental skills in Math, Reading, and Science. The Louis Riel School Division has in the present mission statement, the stated goal to "develop responsible GLOBAL citizen". What is wrong with Canadian citizens? When and why did we start passing students to the next grade, when they have not developed the skills to complete the current grade? These issues are important to me because I believe that every student deserves our best efforts from parents, teachers and administration.

What is one thing in particular that you appreciate about the school ward or school division you wish to represent?

The Lois Riel School Division has helped my kids learn a second language.
