Playing Fast and Loose With Public Education

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Sept. 8, 2010) - Thursday afternoon Toronto city and education advocates will raise the bar within the Back-to-School election discourse! 

Through the medium of tomorrow's Publisher's Book Launch, authors, academics and commentators will raise the wider issues set out in Canada's newest educational compilation, PLAYING FAST AND LOOSE with Public Education. 

Tremendous support and encouragement have been received from Canadian contributors (including John Ralston Saul, Margaret Atwood, Linda McQuaig and David Suzuki) through the past two and-a-half years of this project's development. 

When: 5:30 p.m., Thursday, September 9th, 2010
Where: Enoch Turner Schoolhouse, 106 Trinity St. (east of Parliament, south of King)
