BC redirecting “administrative savings” back to students

“The Government of British Columbia is redirecting $25 million in administrative savings from school districts back into frontline services for students.

Education Minister Mike Bernier said districts can use the funding any way they see fit – for hiring new teachers, for programs, or for maintaining schools despite falling enrolment in certain regions.”

There was a great deal of public lobbying towards restoration of these funds, from a variety of groups, including the BC Confederation of Parent Advisory Councils.
