Vancouver’s Secret Schools Report

Vancouver Sun blogs

While attention was focused on that west-side neighbourhood, everyone knew a broader report about facility use across the district existed, but no one had seen it. (At least, no one who was willing to speak publicly.)

Former trustee Noel Herron requested the report under the freedom of information law and received a heavily censored copy that he has passed to me.

Out of 58 pages, 38 were fully or partially severed.

This report was discussed at a board of education meeting in June 2007 but I’m told a majority of trustees voted to keep it secret. What has happened to it since then? Will it be on the desk of new trustees after next month’s election or has it become irrelevant?
