Good for Kathleen Wynne.
Kathleen Wynne ... said she wants the [Peel] board to develop a budget based on the needs of kids, not on those of the provincial funding formula.
I'm surprised she'd stand up to Dalton McGuinty and the Ontario Liberal Party. It takes strong leadership and a strong committment to go against your government to remain consistent with your personal convictions.
Wait, what? That was 7 years ago? That was when she fought the Ontario government's takeover of the Toronto District School Board?
But, she would hold the same views now, right [CBC, Peel school board refuses to balance books]:
Surely she has misgivings.
Under the Ontario Education Act, Education Minister Kathleen Wynne is mandated to appoint a supervisor to take over financial control of a school board's books to balance its budget.
That would force Wynne to do the same thing she protested against as a Toronto trustee in 2002 when the Conservatives ... were in power.
Through all of this confusion, I think the Dufferin-Peel board should agree with Kathleen Wynne's position on government-appointed supervisors and the Ontario government's education funding formula, don't you? Whatever that position might be.
In an interview with CBC Radio's Metro Morning on Tuesday, Wynne emphasized her position as education minister.
"The law is very clear. If the board's budgets don't balance, then the province has to take action."
