Independent schools meet an important need
Why was a Brockville independent school's bid for purchasing a public school building rejected?
The top bid was rejected because it came from a rapidly growing independent school, Heritage Community Christian School. The diversity of needs that children have requires a diversity of delivery systems, so that all kids have a fair chance at a quality education.
"Giving vibrant, growing school communities the chance to bring old, empty school buildings back to life with a new generation of well-educated students is good not just for those students, but for the public," write Brian Dijkema and David Hunt in the Recorder & Times.
