Am I the only one who was outraged to see parents forced to line up in the cold all night to get the chance to register their children for French Immersion classes the other day?
This has been an ongoing issue for years. The system that the school board has adopted provides an unfair advantage to those privileged enough to be able “spell each other off”; provide a bed for the kids with relatives; or have employers willing to let them have time off so they can participate in this outdated process of registering.
It marginalizes parents who don’t have those privileges, and it forces everybody to sit out in crappy conditions for hours on end.
If nothing else changes, at least open up an area inside the school so people aren’t risking frostbite next year when the weather could be a lot colder.
Figure out a different or better way to do this because obviously, the demand is there.
