I was wrong, it appears to be a trend undertaken at all levels of government. "An ignorant people are easier to manipulate and to make subservient".
It is self evident by the cuts being made in Canada and some Provincial cuts are aimed at eliminating those individuals within the government who are far more intelligent than the ministers and Prime Minister, politicians in general. Now they are attacking our education programs so they can create a population that will not question their efforts to change our society in their image.
Education cuts ‘misguided’ and ‘shocking,’ say experts
Ontario’s education system would be set back a decade if the province were to implement the tough measures recommended by Don Drummond, warned educators on Wednesday
Ontario’s education system would be set back a decade if the province were to implement the tough measures recommended by Don Drummond, warned educators who were left reeling by his call for cuts to full-day kindergarten, larger classes and even charging some students to ride the school bus.
The report also suggests charging students who take a “victory lap” fifth year of high school to brush up their marks, and making sweeping cuts to support staff from psychologists to guidance counselors.
“Our primary concern is that, on the education front, Drummond is looking for a quick fix for a financial situation that’s been a long time in the making,” said Catherine Fife, president of the Ontario Public School Boards’ Association.
She called it “misguided” to cut full-day kindergarten or end the so-called “victory lap.”
Drummond wants school boards to charge students who take more courses than they need to graduate, which costs taxpayers $400 million. He recommends schools let students take 32 credits for free — two more than needed to graduate — but any more would come with a fee.
