To the Editor,

Re: Students deserve better in B.C., Letters, May 28.

Is Kip Wood at all interested in the students or is he just interested in riling up the public?

Stealing from the kids? That line does not belong in the discussion that the minister is suggesting.

Let’s move forward. Let’s get the teachers providing a better environment for the children to learn.

Let’s get the basics of language and mathematical skills better into the teaching programs so that Nanaimo district students don’t show up as so far below the B.C. average that it’s a disgrace.
