In Sask., they’re thinking of doing away with school board elections. Seriously.

Here’s my column that ran this week in which I slam a proposal floating around in this province to get rid of elections to the school boards. 

Consultations have been on and the talk has been about reducing the number of boards, and to have them made up of appointed people. Nobody around here likes this proposal at all. It is so bad, in fact, that even Sask. Party government supporters are opposing it. This idea of unelected boards needs to hit the trash can, now.
