Martin Cropp posted this in the Canadian Classical Bulletin, and I'm sure he won't mind me passing it along:


I would like to encourage CAC members to write in support of the
continuation of the B.Ed. in Classical Studies (Latin) degree programme
which has been running successfully for several years at the Ontario
Institute of Studies in Education (OISE). Some members will have heard
the presentation on this subject by Margaret-Anne Gillis, who organizes
the programme. The programme is suspended for 2005-06 but will run in
2006-07; its long-term future is under review. OISE needs to be
convinced that there will be a sufficient continuing demand for the
programme although the numbers entering it in each year will necessarily
be small. Letters in support of the programme should be supportive and
cooperative in tone, express appreciation of OISE's willingness to offer
this unique programme (the only anglophone Latin Teaching programme in
Canada), emphasize its value as employment preparation for those
students who take it, recommend its continuation beyond 2006-07, and
point out that classicists across the country are eager to support it
and see it succeed.

Letters may be sent to Dr. Jane Gaskell (Dean), Dr. Carol Rolheiser
(Associate Dean), and Mr Mark Evans (Secondary Programme Co-ordinator),
all at the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education, 252 Bloor Street
West, Toronto, ON, M5S 1V6.
