Striving for a better school district

I am a New Westminster parent with two children attending their neighbourhood schools. I am a strong believer in public education but I am not happy with many things here in SD40.

The budget deficit and slow progress of the high school replacement are my two greatest concerns. I joined the Parents For Public Education New Westminster (P4PENW) to hopefully realize real change in the leadership of our school district in the upcoming November elections. Our goal is simple, to help identify and support candidates for school trustee who will do better.

If you share my discontent, consider helping our group—we want to connect with many parents and work together to represent our children’s interests and improve our public education system.

We can be reached at P4PENW@gmail.com.
