The head of the Lakehead Public School Board has just returned from the Czech Republic.
Director of Education Sherri-Lynne Pharand and Woodcrest School Principal A.J. Keene went to speak at a professional development seminar.
They were there at the invitation of the Czech government which asked Canada to send a couple of representatives to give a different perspective on education.
Pharand believes as we become a more global society it’s important to “learn from one another” and “find the strengths in each (education) system.”
