In Parents We Trust
NDP plan to eliminate skills assessments
Released by Ben James, BC Liberal Caucus
ccording to BCTF President Susan Lambert, NDP leader Adrian Dix wants to restrict parents from additional information about how their kids are performing in school. Lambert recently said the NDP "have pledged to dump" Foundation Skills Assessment (FSA) if they win May's election.
"If it's official NDP
policy to eliminate FSAs, Adrian Dix should just say so," said
Education Minister Don McRae. "This raises an important question:
who exactly runs the NDP, Mr. Dix or the unions? If Adrian Dix has
made a secret promise to get rid of FSAs, what other promises has he
made? Why won't they just release their platform and let the public
to decide for themselves?"
