CSDM under crunch for space and teachers

The CSDM, Quebec’s biggest school commission, is running some very blunt ads looking for new teachers: “Disadvantaged setting, multi-ethnic environment, classroom may not have windows” sort of thing. No “grande séduction” going on here*.

The commission is also still grappling with repairing its decrepit school buildings to provide enough space for a surge of new students.

A generation ago, schools around town were being sold off nonchalantly for conversion to condos. Looks pretty silly now.

*Evidently, multi-ethnic environment is a bad thing. Interesting.
