Waterloo Region an exception to classist schooling trend

A new study from People for Education, a research and advocacy group, says the way Ontario high school students make course choices is perpetuating class differences. But the Waterloo Region District School Board seems to function on a different formula, making it an exception to the research.

The Morning Edition spoke to Annie Kidder, the director of education research and advocacy group People for Education, and Mary Lou Mackie, executive superintendent of education for the Waterloo Region District School Board.
