Halton School Board Trustee hosts Provincial Candidates Education Debate

Ontario Education Day 2014 - Meetings scheduled for May 27 in Oakville


Government policies affect the world our children and youth will inherit tomorrow, and they affect their opportunities to get a good education today. The Provincial government decides what is taught in our schools and how much of our Provincial taxes are used to pay for education. The future of Ontario depends on high quality, publicly-funded education. This affects you – whether or not you have children in the school system.

Oakville Trustee Don Vrooman with the support of the Halton District School Board and the Ontario Public School Boards Association have organized Provincial Candidates Meeting in Oakville on Tuesday, May 27, 2014 at 6:30 PM. The meeting will take place at White Oaks Secondary School, 1330 Montclair Drive. The moderator is Hamish Guthrie the WOSS Debate Coach.
