Toronto District School Board increases spending on LGBT activism while leaving schools in a deplorable state

The Toronto District School Board is running a $109 million deficit. Only 59% of grade six students are meeting the provincial standards for math education. The repairs and maintenance backlog is $3.5 billion. Today, Toronto Life reported on a school in which there have been:

raccoon infestations, falling ceiling tiles and water damage. Some parents believe the water is contaminated, and that their kids have developed rashes after drinking from the fountains. Between growing classroom sizes and the arrival of full-day kindergarten in 2014, more and more kids have been forced into the portables.

    Just wait until they leave High school and can’t get a job with the Ontario Gov or City of Toronto because of the quota for all the minority groups and now sexual preference that may trump any other box people mark off.
    And don’t you dare question your employer supporting the hamas groups in PRIDE even when hamas murder gays in gaza, its trendy and is safe from the homofascists and their financial terrorism to ruin a business if you don’t agree with them.

    It appears that the members of the board are bored with their jobs.

    Yup I know a teacher who has trouble affording TEXT BOOKS FOR EACH STUDENT. This is NOT the 1970’s people, times have changed! Having huge debts and deficits are no longer the order of the day.

    Maslow’s hierarchy of needs … =basics first = text books & healthy buildings!

    You realize this is NOT just a Gay community thing. It is a function of LOBBY GROUP THINGS

    The problem is there are too many Gov’t jobs…
    that were, created out of the 60’s social revolution that applied THEN…
    1) that are NO longer necessary, so the people in those jobs have to job create hence some of the ridiculous nickel and dime stuff
    2) that ARE necessary but the people are not addressing the issues that need to be dealt with (politically incorrect =scary or out of laziness )

    The Gay community has to break into the ethnic minority groups where the real anti-Gay sentiments are these days!
    And!!!! To stop ticking off the white community who accepts it’s existence but is getting fed up with being told it is NOT accepting.
    White people are tired of being the BAD EXAMPLE instead of targeting the groups ARE the problem NOW
    JUSTICE IS LAYING THE PROBLEM SQUARELY AT THE FEET OF THE PEOPLE WHO ARE CREATING THE PROBLEMS

    White people are getting ticked off in general for being the BAD EXAMPLE by groups hoping that the minorities will take the “hint”.

    Lobbyists only think of their little nook in the world
    You can’t blame them for winning
    THEY ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR BIG PICTURE THINKING
    BIG PICTURE THINKING IS FOR GOV’T BUREAUCRATS
    who unfortunately think of their voting public and not always in the best interest of the country …. therefore it is up to we the little guy to keep sending in our e-mails of disagreement or approval

    I remember under the provincial Bob Rae government of the NDP they had the Heritage Language program.

    If enough parents demanded it, then the school would have to hire one of the parents to teach that language to the students after class.

    It became quite a scam in Toronto, where you would have parents getting paid to teach some obscure language to a class of 10 or 12 kids and of course they were the ones to got the other parents in their community to make the demand so they would have the income even though they had no teaching qualifications nor training.

    I wonder how much that cost taxpayers?

    It was one of the first things the Harris government got rid of.
