No sympathy for French school complaints

I have to say I am appalled at the nerve of Mr. Philippe Denis’ public complaint regarding the size of the playground at the primarily federally government funded French school!

Even more disturbing is the front page coverage from The Telegram. You really should have a close look at the playground square footage

and equipment in the public English/French Immersion system where parents have to raise funds for space and equipment.

Oh, and by the way, the tax paying dollars also provides daily door-to-door transportation to and from the French school.

Yet again, you have next to individualized academics for each student. Please save face and don’t enrage those in the “real” public system by looking for sympathy.

    The school should not be funded provincially what so ever. (grands-vents) If it's not open to every child in the area, then it shouldn't be funded by their parents tax dollars. Let the francophones pay for their own childrens private education, or go into english stream like everyone else. don't like it? Move to New Brunswick or Quebec.
