Montreal broadcaster Anne Lagacé Dowson has announced her candidacy for chair of the English Montreal School Board.
Lagacé Dowson made the announcement at the shuttered Nazareth school in Mile-End Monday, presenting a platform that includes improved French instruction, cutting expenses, addressing declining enrolment, championing special needs programs and a moratorium on school closures.
“This school (Nazareth) is evidence of the emptiness of the current school regime, and years of gridlock. Instead of working with parents to change this school from a core English school to an immersion school, they locked the doors to balance their books. This is only one of many schools that have been closed leaving students bereft forced to move or take long bus rides.”
