Should students pay to watch Team Canada game? 0

By Terry Davidson, Patrick Maloney, QMIAgency

Did your kid’s school charge students to skip class and watch the biggest Canadian hockey game in years? In an emerging trend across the province, schools have started charging students a “buy-in” fee — the money typically goes to charity — to attend fun events like school football games. Kids who don’t — or can’t — pay stay in class and miss the opportunity. One London, Ont. school, A.B. Lucas secondary, charged students $5 to leave class and watch Friday’s U.S.-Canada hockey semifinal in the school. The money is going to a charity called Relay For Life.
