CBC Ottawa - Parents' fundraising under scrutiny

CBC Ottawa - Parents' fundraising under scrutiny: "Parents' fundraising under scrutiny

TORONTO - Some parents in Ontario are worried about losing control over how money from fundraising gets spent in their children's schools. Under new provincial rules, school councils must report how much money they raise, so that school boards can include it as part of their annual revenues.
Annie Kidder, executive director of People for Education, says parents are being relied upon too heavily to raise funds for underfunded schools. She's worried that, if the government considers those dollars as part of a board's revenue, it may give the boards less money. "
