To the Editor,
I attended the school board meeting last week at Nanaimo District Secondary School and was very impressed by the two presenters from Save Cedar Schools. Their diligence in getting the information correct and the unwavering devotion to advocating for their children is admirable.
It is inconceivable that Nanaimo school district is making an effort to sell their community on the idea that the facilities plan is really in their best interests. Why would anyone believe this?
Ripping the heart out of the community by having all of the high school youth bused elsewhere and pushing all of the elementary kids into one school is a poor plan. It is neither fiscally nor morally defensible.
Give these parents some credit for knowing what makes sense for their families.
