This Blog will discuss politics, government, corruption, police, S.I.U., courts, education, min. of attorney general, min. of labour, v.o.i.c.e. and other current and past events of interest to concerned citizens. In the "About me" section to the right and down I have included the names of persons whom I have tremendous respect for. Their influence on me however has been primarily environmental (and personal) and this is therefore a disclaimer that all words posted on this Blog/Website are mine and I alone am responsible for them. I say this with the greatest respect and affection to my friends.

MORE NEWS ON BOARD OF EDUCATION DYSFUNCTION
Today's Waterloo Region Record carrys the following story titled "Sparring trustees unite for education plan". It's really not a terribly relevant title as the story is primarily about the completion and endorsement of a new Strategic Plan for the Waterloo Region District School Board. This plan is to measure outcomes of students both in graduation percentages and in regards to math and english testing results. For many years the trustees and board bureaucrats tried to slough off below standard results pretending that external factors were responsible for them rather than the two local boards taking responsibility. Despite apparent conflict around the trustees table I see this acceptance of responsibilty for ecucational outcomes refreshing despite being years overdue.
