Support the Tuition Support Program
- Nova Scotia PC Party, Premier Rodney MacDonald, Karen Casey, Dennis Cochrane
On February 9th at the 2007 Annual General Meeting of the
Progressive Conservative Association of Nova Scotia a resolution was
passed that recommended reform to Nova Scotia's Tuition Support
The Equal Education Association of Nova Scotia is encouraged by this
and we are seeking public support.
This valuable program allows children with learning disabilities to
attend a Special Designated Private School by transferring their funding
unit to these schools. This program is not a burden on the tax
payer. EEANS believes this program even saves money.
Please support this program by signing this petition and by sending it
to anyone you think may be interested in supporting this resolution.
Equal Education Association of Nova Scotia
I hereby support:
Timberlea-Prospect (Juanita Cirtwill/Sherri LeBlanc Richards)
Whereas in 2004-2005 the Progressive Conservative government of
Nova Scotia introduced the Tuition Support Program; and Whereas this
program allows children with special challenges who are not being
effectively served by the public system to seek publicly subsidized
private education; and Whereas the program works, with achievement
and satisfaction data collected from the current participants
demonstrating that children who were failing in the public system are
now succeeding, even thriving, under this approach;
Therefore Be It
resolved that the Progressive Conservative Party of Nova Scotia is
committed to expanding this program across the province, making it
easier to qualify for the program, and permitting children to access
the program for their entire k-12 education experience if necessary.
You can further help this campaign by sponsoring it
