The article about former trustee John Young getting school boards to quit charging fees is misleading.
Many of the classes do still have fees attached.
The district gets around the law by calling the classes electives and declaring them options. I think this is exactly what Young was fighting against. Still many students are not able to take classes because of costs. This is discrimination.
The new rock wall climbing class at Stelly’s secondary school costs students $1,000 each. That’s not within many parents’ budgets. And it was built with public funds. That’s very unfair.
