Education 20/20 Round Table Discussion on Education and Preparedness

LearningA lot of discussions are going on about the state of education on PEI. Dr Glendenning was the founding president of Holland College and has put together a non-profit to try and do something about it, as he is very concerned but has hope that something can be done as long as the key stakeholders, parents especially, become more involved and engaged. One of the questions he asked me to consider when we met for coffee recently was “What do you expect from the school that you send your children to?”

If you’d like to get more involved, here’s a good place to start:
