Toronto school board eyes breakup | Toronto Star

Public trustees look at four options to repair problems of Tory amalgamation
Admitting it may be too big to serve students as well as it could, Canada’s largest school board is looking at ways to become more manageable, including breaking itself into smaller boards.

The proposal – among several being studied by a special “governance” committee of Toronto public school board trustees – comes 10 years after then-premier Mike Harris created what was supposed to be a more streamlined, cost-efficient mega-board out of seven former local boards. But some now call that move a failed experiment.
