Dr. Chris Spence, Toronto District School Board's Director of Education, Resigns

TORONTO, Jan. 10, 2013 /CNW/ - Dr. Chris Spence has resigned as Director of Education for the Toronto District School Board effective immediately.

His letter of resignation can be found below:

"It is with great sadness and regret that I am writing to tender my resignation as Director of Education for the Toronto District School Board.

I have come to this decision after a great deal of reflection, and no small amount of consultation with family, friends and colleagues. I do so with a profoundly heavy heart.

My life's work has been education, and the education of young people.  More than anything else, I regret that I have not set a good or proper example for the many thousands of young people I've been privileged to meet and know.

I intend to continue to do the things I pledged to do - to restore my reputation, and to uphold the academic integrity I consider to be so important. But most importantly, to make amends for what I have done.

I do not wish to be a further distraction to the Trustees, or my many friends and colleagues at the Toronto District School Board. I therefore submit my letter of resignation and, once again, offer my sincerest apologies."

Dr. Spence requests that all media inquiries be directed to the Daisy Consulting Group.
