Re: Lets have a reset to competition in schools, Matthew Lau, Dec. 2

Yes, its time to revive the dreaded V word vouchers. Dreaded by the education establishment, but not by consumers the families and taxpayers.

Here are some of the reasons school vouchers make sense:

Support from The UN Universal Declaration of Human Rights: Parents have a prior right to choose the kind of education that shall be given to their children.

Students with special needs, talents or interests can find schools that fit.

Families are strengthened by committing to a school of their choice.

Students at risk of being left behind due to pandemic disruptions can find private tutoring to meet shortfalls.

Voucher systems are appreciably less costly than government monopoly systems.

There are dozens more good reasons. Hopefully both public and politicians can embrace this sensible approach.

Re: Read Petersons books, kids, Marjorie Gann, Letter to the editor, Nov. 28, and A pathetic display by an anti-Jordan Peterson woke mob, Rex Murphy, Nov. 25

I was impressed and delighted by Marjorie Ganns letter, in which she weighed in against some Penguin Random House staff in the controversy over publishing Jordan Petersons next book. It was one of those I wish Id written that moments. But admiration grew to adulation when I realized the potential cost to an author speaking out against a publisher. If only more Canadians had the courage of their convictions
