Video: Burlington Schools – Trading Over Capacity for Under Capacity

The HDSB’s school closure option plans for half or more of schools to be over capacity.

I was inspired to seek public office because I believe, like so many of you, “I can do something about that” on the issues we face. As councilor, my role is to take a stand on what’s best for residents and go to bat for it. Pushback is inevitable from those who don’t have the community’s interests at heart. I will stand with you and for you, to achieve the best interests of our city, without caving to unacceptable compromise in the name of consensus.

  1. Bob,

    Your missing the the point.
    Central has the most diverse of all the schools. Low income families right up to the people who can afford a million dollar homes. There are people purchasing these homes with kids because of the schools!

    “Often in downtowns where the greatest number of low-income families, single parent families and immigrant families are located. Downtown schools like Burlington Central, are located in business districts that provide access to co-op placements, volunteer hours, and work placements at 430 businesses and several civic centres – which will all be lost if the school is closed”

    Marianne this is a great letter. Thank you for helping guide us through this mess!

What's your take?
