Kris Magnusson, dean of education, was quoted in a guest column, in The Vancouver Sun, about the BC government’s initiative to overhaul the province's K-12 school system.

"Magnusson ... describes the plan as ‘visionary’ and ‘an exciting direction’ that is aligned with teacher training at SFU.

"‘In our faculty we've been exploring and supporting personalized learning for years,’ he says, adding, ‘I think the plan is a good starting point for enhancing the current system.’

“Magnusson, who says he has had some consultation with the ministry about the plan, says it is short on specifics and details about how it addresses kids falling through the cracks.” Full story here.
