Dawson teacher under investigation

A Dawson College teacher is facing a wave of misconduct allegations.

Winston Sutton is a long time drama teacher at the college. 

Several students have come forward saying Sutton made sexual comments and invaded their personal space. 

This is the second time students have come forward with stories about the teacher…

In 2017, several students said he bullied and harassed them, according to CTV News.


Homeschooling numbers skyrocket

Nearly double the amount of kids will be homeschooled this year. 

During the COVID-19 pandemic, the tally of children in homeschool jumped from 6 to 10 thousand in Quebec. 

Those numbers are expected to increase, as parents continue to register their children for homeschooling. 


Virus found in 47 Quebec schools

47 schools in Quebec have had at least one case of COVID-19 since August 26. 

Six of those schools are private, the rest are in the public system. 

According to CTV News, Health Minister Christian Dubé says those cases are from community transmission, not between students and staff.
