Back to School

Today was back to school day for most of Canada. Bushboy is going to a new school this year, after deciding to enter a different program in the district. He is more excited than nervous, which is a great way to start. It was a hard decision, as he left his old school just when he would have been one of the top students in the school as one of the highest grade group. The nicest thing about this program is that all the students are new, so the class could just get right down to business today while all the other students are still struggling with class assignment, etc for the rest of this week. We are excited for Bushboy, and really proud of him for choosing what we believe will be a positive direction in his schooling to come.

Our province is dealing with teachers taking job action, our district is facing record low enrollment, and education is in a time of great turmoil. I will be looking at more of these issues over the next week on the blog, so I hope you’ll join me for the conversation.
