Dawn Danko In The News – Danko Wants To Fix Severely Flawed School Arcs

Dear Friends in Ward 7:

In a recent interview with Hamilton Community News writer Richard Leitner, I had the opportunity to discuss why I am running for Ward 7 – Hamilton Central Mountain Public School Trustee.

In addition to my position that the current school closure review process needs a complete overhaul from the ground up, I think that it is also important to point out that being a public school trustee is also about making sure that our valuable tax dollars are spent wisely in the classroom.

From the article:

Danko said her background – she has a Master’s degree in education, teaches radiation therapy at Mohawk College and runs a commercial photography business with her husband – will make her a strong voice for Ward 7.

She said it will also be useful on 21st Century learning, including the introduction of iPads in grades 4 to 12 over the next five years, a plan she feels requires great care.

The board needs to ensure, for instance, that teachers have the necessary training for blended learning and that the iPads don’t just become a way for students to access social media like Facebook, she said.

“The other risk is that you just end up offloading some of the in-classroom work for students to do independently,” she said. “That works for some students, but for a lot of students, they really need that mentoring in the classroom.”
