While I cannot deny the kids of the Tamil refugees access II education. I believe that the British Columbia Ministry Of Education is wrong right at this very moment to education thse kids when British Columbia Schools, hell, even schools Canada wide are suffering from financial deficits. The students of British Columbia are in may ways being shafted because they are losing part of their educational stream to these non Canadian, Tamil migrant kids. While the Tamil kids have the right to learn, shouldn't British Columbian kids have the right to learn first? After all, its their parents tax money thats paying IV these boat person kids to be educated, straining an already overburdened system.
