In the wake of the new Super Hospital, Brock plans to create a Super School, replacing the antiquated DSBN.
Jack Lightstone, President of Brock University, said under conditions of anonymity “At Brock we see the importance of developing ‘both sides of the brain’, and to do it starting at the earliest age possible”.
The University sees this as a win-win-win situation. Kids in kindergarten through to grade 12 begin preparing for a higher education right from the start. Teachers will be pulled from Brock’s own concurrent education system – in a sense teaching the teachers as they teach children and teens. Taxpayers and the DSBN will carry a lighter burden.
“Look, the DSBN is closing down schools all over the place.” continued Mr. Lightstone “We’ve been here a long time, and will continue to educate for even longer”.
The big benefit to Brock is that students graduating from Grade 12 will see Brock as an even more viable university to attend as they continue their education. While there will be a nominal fee to attend in the kindergarten to grade 12 years, it will be primarily financed through the higher attendance expected as a result of students staying with their school.
