Moral Support or Financial Support? 

Yesterday, one day after session ended, Minister Oberg announced that the government was "in support of" 84 of the 95 recommendations in the Learning Commission Report. Parents held their breath in anticipation . . . could it be? Could this government finally be doing the right thing for children? What is the catch?

The catch, it turns out, is that, while the government "supports" the recommendations, it is not prepared to invest the MONEY that it would take to implement them. When asked what his message to parents was around the money issue, Oberg said "Wait for the budget". This clearly means that nothing will happen, if it does at all, until the next school year.

Once again, we watch and wait . . . and so do our children.

WHEN is the next election????????????
