QESBA concerned about message given by the Minister of Education

MONTREAL, May 31, 2017 /CNW Telbec/ - The Quebec English School Boards Association (QESBA) is concerned about interference in the classroom following the directive deposited by the Minister of Education yesterday in the National Assembly.

"The education and evaluation of students is a collective effort. We trust the teachers and administrators in our schools to evaluate and measure their knowledge, capabilities, and competencies," said QESBA President Jennifer Maccarone. The role and responsibilities of each member in the education sector must be respected, and the law applied.

"Issuing a directive through the National Assembly is worrisome for our sector considering we have a collective 86% success rate and work daily with our head offices, administrators, and teachers to ensure the best educational services for our students. We have always executed due diligence to ensure best practices and educational success in our school boards. Therefore, we have tangible reason to believe our schools know what's best for their students, and for their classrooms," concluded the President.

QESBA is the voice of English public education in Quebec.
