Schools of crimes and despair

Jordan Manners' death might spur some action on the problems facing some of Ontario's big-city high schools. Already, some teachers are bravely speaking up while school board trustees and officials plead ignorance. C.W. Jeffreys appears to be a school out of control. If that doesn't change, hundreds of young people will be deprived of an education and the social problems in the neighbourhood will only get worse.

Let's hope this problem gets some legs. We know that organized gangs are running amuck in our cities and our schoolyards are impacted. It’s time to quit the pretense that it doesn’t happen here. We have an obligation to keep all kids safe. But Mayor Miller and McGuinty will not respond , we need new leadership that has a sense of reality.
