Montreal, June 2, 2008 – A major study into the impact and potential of the Internet on English public schools in Quebec has called on educators, government and the media to shift the focus from “threat” to opportunity”. The Quebec English School Boards Association (QESBA) commissioned the report, produced by a blue-ribbon task force of outside experts, Internet practitioners, health practitioners, students and law-enforcement officials. The Task Force was chaired by Dr. Claude Lajeunesse, President and CEO of the Aerospace Industries Association of Canada and former President of Concordia and Ryerson Universities and benefited from the active participation of Dr. Shaheen Shariff, one of Canada’s recognized experts on cyber-bullying.
