MLA Rick Fraser also worries the actions of the Minister of Education will pit communities against one another in the search for funding.
“I have schools in my riding fighting for every dollar through fundraising to try and get their students the necessary equipment.”
“For these schools and parent groups to be working that hard and then see surprise funding show up in another community, I think that makes people think “Why them, why not us?”
“So I think the Minister needs to be clear on where this extra $200,000 is coming from, and when these other schools can expect the same level of help.”
