McTaggart says segregation policy ruined school system

Days after MLA Winston Connolly said he would never send his children to public schools based on his disappointment with the public education system,

George Town MLA Roy McTaggart said the government made a failing move by implementing the segregation policy years ago.

Mr. McTaggart said he believes the current standards of public education has failed based on separating public and private school students to avoid the overcrowding of school zones.

“I came up through the public school system so I am a proponent of the public school system where I think we probably have failed is with that segregation policy that was adopted many years ago and I personally felt very strongly against it,” Mr. McTaggart said.

The George Town MLA said he understands the rationale to implement the segregation policy years ago but says the administration at the time should have sought to alleviate the issues of the education system more quicker.
