Media invitation: How do we go about building a knowledge-based economy in Montreal with a 40% dropout rate? A joint effort is required



    MONTREAL, Oct. 25 /CNW Telbec/ - Montreal Hooked on School invites media
representatives to attend its annual Communities in Dialogue conference, being
held this Friday, October 26, 2007, at the Grande Bibliothèque. As part of the
third annual Communities in Dialogue conference, three speakers, each
convinced of the important role that education plays in sustaining Montreal's
dynamism and vitality, will discuss the need to become collectively involved

generation of qualified workers and create the conditions needed to position
Montreal as a city of knowledge.
