Public Education, Public Pride: The centennial history of the BC School Trustees Association by James B. London

Public Education, Public Pride tracks the history of the oldest trustee association in Canada from its first meeting of one female and 19 male BC school trustees in the Vancouver School Board offices in 1905 to today. Public Education, Public Pride is an essential guide to the evolution of public education in BC, with a focus on school trustees’ role in that history. Those with an interest in the history of education will not want to miss this thoughtful work. Author James B. London worked for 23 years as a teacher and principal, served for six years as a school trustee with the Sooke School Board and was an instructor at four universities.
