Saanich Student Paper on Modernizing Secondary Education

This paper represents the consensus view of 100 students from five secondary schools in School District 63 Saanich and is based on thoughts compiled during a day-long student forum on May 27, 2010. Following the forum, five students gathered to review the outcomes of that day and to create the themes that form the basis of this paper. For a list of authors and contacts please refer to the end of the paper.
