Kudos to the Lester B. Pearson School Board for making a pedagogically sound decision. The "LBPSP will not join EMSB Bill 96 court challenge," (Suburban, June 16).

Instead, it has chosen to heed the advice put out by the provincial ombudsperson. In his June 13, 60-page report, Marc-André Dowd said that "Quebec is failing its primary school students with special needs students."

One student out of seven exhibits learning or other academic difficulties and, sadly, services are limited because of a lack of financing.

So good for Pearson for choosing to invest monies for student services.
