Nov. 15 is a pivotal moment in public education, the date of local trustee and municipal elections in B.C.
On this day, voters will have an opportunity to elect the women and men who will lead and oversee public education in various communities. School trustees working in their communities with education partners and parents provide focus and direction to help realize the educational aspirations of students throughout the province. Public education is everyone’s business. It is the engine that will determine the success of our province. Our future employees, leaders, parents and citizens will come from today’s classrooms.
Nov. 15 is your opportunity to select the individuals in your community who will advocate for that future and who will determine the directions to guide this critical public investment.
Public education is always exciting and challenging in British Columbia. When I see students in our classrooms supported by dedicated teachers, administrators support staff, and trustees, I see the future.
Working together with a clear focus on what is best for student ensures that the future will be bright.
