School trustee Sotiropoulos hosts town hall meeting on education

Scarborough Mirror

Calling for “an honest dialogue” on public education in Ontario and the future of the Toronto District School Board, Sam Sotiropoulos is hosting a town hall meeting in Agincourt next week with some of the city’s education reporters.

“Recent developments and ongoing issues have brought the school board to a new low in public confidence,” said the Ward 20 trustee, who in a release described his first year in the post as an eventful one which generated many questions and suggestions from his constituents.

His meeting, from 7 to 9 p.m. next Tuesday March 5 at Stephen Leacock Collegiate on Birchmount Road north of Sheppard Avenue East, includes a panel with writers Kate Hammer, Moira MacDonald and Kristin Rushowy.

“The discussion of our public schools and their future is an issue that relates to all of us in some way,” Sotiropoulos added in the release, inviting anyone who wants more information to write or call 416-397-3063.

It's about time some Scarborough politician has the intestinal fortitude to want to engage the community in an honest discussion. Too bad the rest of our politicians don't follow his lead. I was present at the Scarborough Hospital town hall meeting earlier tonight and I saw that Trustee Sotiropoulos was the sponsor for the Town Hall Meeting on the hospital restructuring. What are the rest of our Scarborough politicians doing? This one seems to want to get the community involved and informed on the issues. What are the rest of our Scarborough politicians doing? Good for trustee Sam, I support him.
