It amazes me that INFORMED could read this article and the only thing they took from it was who delayed the response to it. Does it really matter? The problem needs to be fixed and should have been dealt with as soon as the report was released. This concerns our children and it should not have been hidden from parents. There is a very simple solution to this very serious problem, remove the source of the toxic fallout. I wonder if a teacher was treating the administration in that horrible negative manner would they still be there? Are they not held to the same level of accountability? Our children are the ones who are suffering from this negativity. Lets focus on getting it fixed so we have happy, confident and thriving students and teachers.

This opinion piece is very misleading. The response to the report was not delayed by the administration, it was delayed because the NLTA, and Gail Carrol had to deal with the fall out from the recent provincial budget. It was also not the decision of the administration to keep the assessment "secret", it was the NLTA policy to keep the report confidential. It was available for anyone on staff to see. There is certainly bullying at QPMS. There are people on staff that have leaked this report in an effort to manipulate public opinion to bully administration because they don't agree with certain rules in place. This opinion piece was certainly a fairer assessment of the situation at QPMS then previous articles, but the conclusion Micheal Johansen makes is pure fabrication of his imagination.

I know what it's like to work in a toxic work environment. this matter needs to be dealt with IMMEDIATELY. why is the department of education not already involved? does anyone in authority accept responsibly for their actions or inactions anymore?
