Ontario Liberals sitting on TDSB report… till after elxn42

In mid-March, Education Minister Liz Sandals announced, with a splash, the (latest) panel to tackle the dysfunctional Toronto District School Board (TDSB) — this one to look at whether it had outgrown its shelf life.

The seven-member panel, costing $150 per diem daily per member and headed by Barbara Hall (fresh from her 10-year cozy $167,341 sinecure with the Ontario Human Rights Commission) was to report by end of June — latest end of summer — on a possible new and more effective model to govern the board.

The task force followed on the heels of a 34-page report on the embattled board by respected educator Margaret Wilson, which was delivered in January.
