4th Reading

CLASSROOM CRACKDOWN Premier Harris has promised to bring in a strict Code of Conduct for Ontario students in the upcoming session of the Legislature. Students will face suspensions for swearing at a teacher, automatic expulsion for bringing weapons to school or giving another student drugs and alcohol.

Tonight, Bob Gooding, the principal at Danforth Technical Institute in Toronto and Scarborough school trustee Mike Thomas join our Fourth Reading pundits Gina Brannan, Richard Mahoney and Ruth Grier.
