Donna Quan, the director of education for the Toronto District School Board, has participated in “destructive attacks” against trustees who have criticized her in an effort to silence their legitimate questions about the way taxpayers’ money is spent, says an investigator appointed to review the board.
It has been more than six months since education specialist Margaret Wilson chronicled dysfunction and a “culture of fear” at Canada’s largest school board – prompting the government to set up a panel of civic leaders and former trustees to examine whether governance problems at the board are rooted in its size.
Although her mandate has ended, Ms. Wilson has gone further, explaining in interviews with The Globe and Mail her conclusions about Ms. Quan’s leadership from her two-month probe: “It’s rule by fear. You pick people off, one by one, which is what classic bullies do.”
The TDSB is a cesspit. The TDSB sic’d the Cops on yours truly in what can only be described as an effort to silence my exposure of their twisted culture.
