Students study social issues

Public School students in the city are now more in tune with a number of social issues. It follows a one day conference on diversity in education. Organizer Robin Laye says it's the third year for the program.  This year the topics for discussion were, anti-homophobia, cultural sensitivity, racism, sexism and women's issues.   The purpose of the program is to allow students to learn the skills needed to deal with the problems they face in the system on a regular basis.
