The following is a statement from Progressive Conservative Education Critic Kim Masland:

I am disturbed by what I heard this morning about Amy Bennett’s experience at Bayview Community School. Our schools should be safe and inclusive places for children. No child should feel the fear that Amy did at school.

Today, I am calling on Education Minister Zach Churchill to honour Amy’s request for a meeting. I am also asking him to find a compromise that will protect information of a human resource nature contained in the investigative report’s recommendations, but also give the Bennett family confidence that the kind of incident that Amy experienced won’t happen to any other student.
