Toronto District School Board purported to be dysfunctional: blames trustees

TDSB report a stinging indictment of trustees and the Education Director's salary

Report by troubleshooter Margaret Wilson, citing a ‘culture of fear, orders Toronto trustees to stop meddling in everyday operations.

After watching Canada’s largest school board wallow in dysfunction for years, Queen’s Park has ordered Toronto trustees to stop meddling in everyday operations — no more interfering with principals, no more treating schools as personal “fiefdoms,” no more private offices at board headquarters — in a bid to ease the “culture of fear” cited by troubleshooter Margaret Wilson in a report released Thursday.

Sandals also ordered the board to drop education director Donna Quan’s salary to $272,000 from $289,000 because it violates the province’s wage freeze, even though trustees voted earlier this week to leave it unchanged.
