14. Alternatives to School Boards

Jean Charest, Premier of Quebec, has called a General Election for Dec. 08/08. He said his minority government can’t operate with “three pairs of hands on the helm”. He seeks a majority government to tackle the difficult times ahead.

He blamed the other two parties of brinkmanship with the PQ and ADQ threatening to force votes of confidence and vote together to bring down his Liberals. He cited the ADQ plan to abolish school boards as a possible issue to bring down his government.

In the last election of 2007 the school board issue was widely discussed. ADQ claimed that by abolishing the boards this would remove this extra layer of bureaucracy, leaving governance to the municipalities, the provincial government and the schools themselves.

We shall await any discussions of this issue in Quebec in the next month
