British Columbia, Canada


The following excerpt is from R.(L.) v. R., 1998 CanLII 3957 (BC SC):

The Queen, 1986 CanLII 32 (SCC), [1986] 2 S.C.R. 284 neatly summarized the essential problem with claims of this kind: The courtroom is simply not the best arena for the debate of issues of educational policy and the measurement of educational quality.
