Problems and My Solutions
Right now here in Peel District School Board, there are problems that need to be fixed, problems that are hurting our students and their chance of success.
I want to fix these problems, and I have ideas that can help our students have a better learning experience and make their school life the best possible
Lack of Communication Between Parents and Teachers
As a father of school aged children, I am always concerned about their progress. It is difficult these days for parents to communicate with the teachers and they only really know what is happening with their child after the Parent-Teacher Interview. I propose that every month, the teachers will communicate with the parents to give a brief overview of what is happening with their child and how they are doing in school. This will be done by an automatic process with minimal effort by the teachers.
Fair Deals for the Peel District School Board
Right now, there is a formula which allocates how much money each of the school boards get. I will work on the issue until Peel District School Board gets their fair share. In the past, such an important issues has not been resolved due to lack of commitment by all stakeholders. I will be updating the progress on a monthly basis. This will help me to stay focused on the issue till it is resolved.
More Advocation for Ailing Buildings
At the moment, there are many school buildings in the ward which are in serious need of replacement. This is a serious safety risk which needs to be more advocated and with the money we receive, I intend to ensure that there will be proper processes in place to build new and/or improve buildings with little interruption to the students.
Youth Engagement in The Community
These days, there is a lack of engagement in the community from the youth. I plan to change that by starting a new Mentorship Program in each of the high schools. These programs will be promoting the already existing mentorship programs which are not given the due acknowledgement they deserve. With this program, more youths will know about the opportunities in the community and how they can help which not only look good on a resume or application for university, but also help them by helping them meet new people and get the work experience they need for future jobs.
