University presidents denounce Dal / Memorial B.Ed

April 17, 2008

In a letter to the editor of the Halifax Chronicle-Herald, the presidents of Mount Saint Vincent University and Acadia University denounce the recent B.Ed partnership between Dalhousie University and Memorial University. The letter's authors cite the 2007 Report and Recommendations of the Review Panel on Teacher Education in Nova Scotia, which concluded there was an oversupply of teachers in the province and existing educational partnerships should be discontinued. Last week, Nova Scotia's education minister recommended ending such joint educational programs. The Halifax Chronicle-Herald
