Gayle, B. B. (n.d.). A Good Start : The Pioneer Spirit in Calgary Public Schools. Retrieved from

I have written this book to help us recall the original dream for education, the vision of those who built the sandstone schools and those who taught in one room buildings for the sake of education. If we are a rich province, and we are, our schools should feel it. Our kids deserve the best we can give them and not to be shelved as a low budget item. But maybe, knowing that, we would be wiser to not just ask the government or the public to find schools' better'. The secret of return to respect might be hidden in what the lady told me- we in the schools should show others what we need and where we 'd like to do more, specifically.
