Kevin G. Lynch, vice-chairman of the BMO Financial Group, writes in the Globe and Mail: "When discussing the challenges facing the education system in Canada, we often seem to accept the false premise that the only problem is funding... This challenge is much more than an incremental program here or some fine-tuning there; it involves a culture change in how we all take more accountability for educational outcomes." It may be true that more money alone won't improve our educational system, but it would be wrong to infer that the system can be improved without making the investment up front. As bankers well know, it takes money to save money.
