HURON BRUCE WILL REMAIN TOP OF MIND FOR NEWLY APPOINTED MINISTER OF EDUCATION 7/5/2018 7:37:27 AM
Huron-Bruce will continue to be top of mind for the newly appointed Minister of Education. Huron-Bruce MPP Lisa Thompson was recently appointed the Minister of Education and will also be on the Ontario Treasury Board. Thompson says one of the main things her party is going to be looking at is the sex-education curriculum.
Thompson says in the past under previous structure in place there was only one person for every elementary school in this province. She says they will embark in a process that will be wholesome and inclusive while working with her team to keep local residents and priorities top of mind. Thomspon says while it's exciting to be a part of premier Doug Ford's cabinet, there is still a great deal of work ahead.
Says says she plans to ensure rural Ontario doesn't get forgotten about and that schools remain open.
Thomspon says her number one priority is staffing up and working with the team that's already in place. She says she wants to make sure everyone in the province realizes the economic pillars schools bring to the communities they're in.
