A plan to cut administrative jobs put together in secret by a BC school trustee set off alarm bells among CUPE members, teachers and even some trustees this week.

CUPE, along with the BC Teachers Federation and the BC federation of labour, denounced the scheme to privatize school boards and called on the provincial government to take a stand on the issue.

Meanwhile, other school districts were wrinkling their noses at the idea, arguing that services were already suffering from contracting out and that the proposed structure would reduce local trustees ability to control services.
