School board faces student overload

The CSDM is coping with a growing overload of primary school students but what did they expect? I’ve seen school buildings repurposed as condos, torn down because they were too mouldy, boarded up and left to rot. That school commission was acting for decades as if they never expected kids to be born in the city any more.

Update: The commissions are blaming Denis Coderre for not stepping up to help them out of this jam. But this is something Coderre cannot be blamed for. This problem comes from decisions and attitudes adopted long before this municipal administration, and they were never within the city’s purview anyway.
