TORONTO, March 12 /CNW/ - The Ontario Student Trustees' Association is
excited to announce the first edition of the first province-wide student

"what are schools and what should they become?"
"This paper embodies the unique perspective and vision of the voice that
matters most in education - students. We are thrilled to initiate this new
endeavour as a way to connect students across the province in open dialogue
that strives to celebrate education and realise improvements," said
association president Andrew Pawluch, of Sudbury.
The paper is being made available to school boards across the province by
mail and an electronic copy, which will be placed on the association's

youth population in a discussion of ideas," said OSTA communications director
Jonathan Scott, the paper's editor. "We're very excited about the start and
hope to make it better in the coming editions."
The paper is written with the goal of advancing the student vision in
education, to help improve the quality of education in Ontario.
