VCPAC calls on Minister of Education to Return Administrative Savings


VCPAC has sent a letter today to the Minister of Education recommending that he reverse the
recent decision to cut funding to districts pursuant to his Ministry’s directive to find administrative
savings.

 

“In our district, we have sought and achieved efficiencies in our administrative costs for many
years, said VCPAC President, John Bird.  “The recent cuts will return these savings to the province
instead of providing resources for our classrooms as we intended.”
