  1. Seriously? Rather than just add to the bureaucracy why not build more downtown schools so parents don’t have to travel to get their kids to class? Better yet, repeal the decision that lets parents put their kids in schools out of their catchment area. They’re almost exclusively driven there.

  2. More downtown schools is your answer? Oh, right, because you already live downtown and don’t have kids. That’s why you think that is a good idea. Man, our biases really do taint our view of the world sometimes. You should apply to that job. Dispense more casual wisdom to the rest of us dummies.

      1. Oh, one guy did it. And it’s in Vancitybuzz. Yes, then it stands to reason that is the only viable choice. Build all schools downtown. Genius.
