Prince George was the first of what Kevin Rose hopes will be a series of forums on public education in B.C.
Rose, the provincial K-12 coordinator for the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE), was one of the speakers at a forum Monday evening at the College of New Caledonia.
“It was a very good crowd,” he said. “It was a diverse crowd. There were school trustees, excluded staff from some of the schools. It wasn’t just a CUPE thing, it was a public gathering.”
And what they heard from Rose and other speakers was a very simple message.
