Letter: Everyone has a stake in our children’s education

To the editor:

The government actions shows they are not supporting a well balanced school education in B.C.

Do you ever wondered why our B.C. premier and other ministers send their children to private schools? Of course they believe the quality of the public school is too low.

Thus one wonders, is there a hidden project to kill the quality of school education funds?

When I listen to Peter Fassbender, Minister Of Education. He tells us: “taxpayers do not want to pay for education.”

I say he surely did not ask me. I gladly pay for school education and teacher’s class composition rather than paying for bonuses for civil servants and politicians.

How is it possible that a liberal platform of Pierre Trudeau’s concept of a better education and bilingualism is not followed in B.C.?

Where are the journalists of today to challenge the lack of charismatic future of this province for a skilled, intelligent population?

Only quality of school education can bring a population of hardworking, highly motivated labourers and intelligence into this province.

Who can give this massage to the premier and to the minister of education?

Please get involved regardless of your age.

Irmgard Thiessen,

Kelowna
