Swihart pholo Tighten enrolment reins The Alberta School Trustees' Association plans to seek a meeting with Education Min- ister Lou Hyndman to press for Immediate action on "the problem" of foreign students enrolling In high schools in this province. "Foreign students arc enter- ing Cnnnda in ever increas- ing numbers and many a r o using Hie schools of Alberta and other provinces as a back door lo said Harold Gundcrson, ASTA presi- dent, in a press release. Air. Gunderson said school boards be advised nbout the problem and will lie asked that they not enrol stu- dents unless they have landed immigrant status, have a good command of the lan- guage and can pay non-resi- dent fees of a year. "The ASTA does rot to be tagged with a discrimina- tion said Mr. Gunder- son. "But Albertana should bo made aware (hat it costs al- most a year lo educate a high school student, and I don't see any reason why llio taxpayers of this country should bear the costs of educating an- other country's sludcnls." The release said 221 Chinese students enrolled in Alberta schools last year. Mr. Gundcrson said Alberta schools are being deluged with letters of application from for- eign students, mostly from Hong Kong, asking for permis- sion lo register in different high schools. "If the principal, for humane nUcntio7 or other reasons, writes a )cl- ter of permission to a student, then Iho student presents tho letter to the Canadian immi- gration student office and rccjucsls a visa which the immi- gralion office cannot refuse, "The student then turns up In Canada and cilher attends llio school applied to or turns up on the doorstep of any school, asking for admission." Mr. Gundcrson said he spoko lo one high school principal who had been contacted by an "educational brokerage firm" in Hong Kong, asking the prin- cipal to name the firm us his agent for the recruitment of Chinese students for which tha principal would pay so much cash on (.he barrel for each stu- dent delivered (o the school.
