Education Minister Clyde Jackman said today that members of the transition committee overseeing the consolidation of the province’s four English-language school boards are elected trustees.

A news release states the members were elected to the current schools boards they serve — school boards that will continue to operate until Aug. 31.

“The transition committee is composed of the four existing school board chairs, and one other elected trustee from each of the boards — Labrador, Western, Nova Central and Eastern,” Jackman said.

“The trustees were selected with a view to ensuring there is balanced regional representation and that there are women included on the committee.”

Lorne Wheeler, a former educator, school administrator, and deputy minister of Education, is the independent chair of the committee.

Jackman said the consolidation process being followed is about the same as that which occurred in 2004 when 10 English-language boards were consolidated into four.

    If this is like the task forces from days gone by then we are doomed. It was only a little while ago when cabinet went out to corner brook that tom marshall was saying shame on people for thinking that any decisions can't be made outside of the over pass, when people said they were out there wasting time and money. I figure the federal cons think they can run a search and rescue from the mainland and Ottawa so why cant the province cons do the same with our education system. We all see how well that's working out. Why do the conservatives think that providing services to the people are a waste of money?
