Say... who was the education minister...

...under Premier Dalton McSlippery?
If the latest dismal math test results for Grades 3 and 6 Ontario students prove anything, it is indeed that throwing more money at education has not added up to student success.

Doretta Wilson, executive director of the Society for Quality Education, says the latest math results were achieved, or should I say not achieved, even as students are allowed to use calculators in class and during the standardized tests.
It can't be that the education system is being financially deprived...
Under the watch of the former so-called education premier — Dalton McGuinty — funding for the education portfolio increased by a whopping $5.1 billion over the last five years.

"Within days, if not hours, Liberal MPPs had constituents calling their offices to complain that the province wanted to explain anal sex to eight-year-olds."
It was also the Libs who put the seal of approval on race-based schools... prompting yet more anger...
"I just never thought I would see the day when the KKK and the Left would agree on segregation."
"Why stop at race-based schools? Perhaps we should have separate buses, water fountains, washrooms and restaurants for blacks?"
And remember this doozy?
-- Wednesday November 17 -- Education Minister Leona Dombrowsky is steering clear of the debate and repeatedly refused Wednesday to say what she thought about the proposal.

It's up to the board to make a decision about whether it wants to pay kids for good grades, she said.
Your Liberal Party in action. No wonder the cupboard is bare.
