Hon. Dave Eggen, B. Ed., MLA, Minister of Education, New Democratic, Edmonton-Calder

Dear Dave:

The nice thing about The Program Room here at the Sprucewood Branch EPL is it is so near the main study area on one level. in this way, kids with temper tantrums who are say walked over there for a "timeout" can still be relaxed & happier much quicker knowing that their family is close at hand!

Yet Another Fantastic EPL Innovation!,

Pick Up The Pace

Hon. Dave Eggen, B. Ed., MLA, Minister of Education, New Democratic, Edmonton-Calder

Dear Dave:

In this tough economy, students starting new p/t jobs & those folks starting a new f/t position should "hasten" to work & display the best positive attitude. In this way, they are more likely to make an impression & thus hold the job longer.

Jobbed,

New Democratic, Edmonton-Calder

Dear Dave:

I was shown a Grade XII practice Social Studies XXX exam earlier this morning & I noticed that the edges are sharper than normal & the paper had ripples in it. This Dave could cause students to cut their hands if they are running their figures over them. Perhaps the matter should be looked into to ensure that no actual exams are like this at the educational printer being ready for shipment!

Safety Guard

Hon. Dave Eggen, B. Ed., MLA, Minister of Education, New Democratic, Edmonton-Calder

Dear Dave:

Sure students volunteer as crossing guards along with parents/teaching staff at the start & end of each day. But wouldn't it be great Dave if we could pay students from say high schools a small stipend to be crossing guards where there are shortages of volunteers. In this way, they can earn a little money towards their educational costs, plus as there are no school zones by high schools, they wouldn't be making their own schools suffer in any way.

Guard Duty,

Dear Dave:

Students looking for  a true "world experience" might be interested in taking travel/tourism courses. After all, many of these courses include a travel component, thus allowing these students to see the world & gain a new perspective.

At One Table

February XVth, MMXVII

Hon. Dave Eggen, B. Ed., MLA
Minister of Education,
New Democratic, Edmonton-Calder

Dear Dave:

There seems to be quite the interest in the funding model for advanced education institutions led by your caucus colleague the Hon. Marlin Schmidt, B. Sc., M. Sc., MLA, Minister of Advance Education, New Democratic, Edmonton-Gold Bar. The way I figure it is, Mar should call up the Presidents &/or Chancellors of every school & sit down & hammer this reconfiguration of funds out executive style, all at one table.

Executive Boardroom,

Rory
