The following is a submitted article for inclusion without endorsement from the GDRA but as a reminder to vote for a new Ward 14 Toronto District School Board Trustee:
“I believe in the power of the public education system and its ability to provide opportunities that shape our society. My wife Mary is a public high school teacher in the neighbourhood, and our daughter will be starting school in a few years. As a child of Chinese immigrants from India my early life was shaped by Toronto public schools, and I want to ensure that present and future generations of students have access to those same opportunities and more.
If chosen as your next Trustee, I will fix our crumbling schools, fight to keep student support programs running, and see that schools and their green spaces continue to be community hubs”.
