LETTER – Continuation of international student program amid pandemic smacks of a money grab

Dear editor,

Interesting that the Comox Valley School District is continuing its international education program.

RELATED: SD71 says strict protocols in place for international student program

Rotary International has been in student exchange programs for decades and this is their position “A: Updated November 2020: After carefully considering the results of a risk assessment we conducted in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and monitoring the impact of the virus on communities around the world, the board of directors of Rotary International decided to suspend both short-term and long-term exchanges through 30 June 2021.”

I am guessing that tuition money speaks louder than health safety for the Comox Valley School District.

William Burns,
