Peel board of ed gets it right

It looks like some folks at the Peel district school board (my local board) have been giving some serious thought to all the new immigrants in Brampton (more than half the school population doesn't speak English at home).
"the board has centralized the registration of immigrant students at the three new centres in Brampton, Mississauga and Malton, where newcomers are assessed and offered orientation interviews before being enrolled in one of the board's 236 schools. The centres are made possible by a $3.7 million grant from Citizenship and Immigration Canada."
