Our team were very fortunate to work with Carol when the Board was faced with a complex and difficult issue. Carol’s common sense approach and experience ensured we received invaluable legal advice and guidance. We very much appreciated her knowledge and expertise and warmly recommend her to future clients.
Carol assisted us with our private school registration process. Her involvement was immensely productive and helped us navigate the Education Act requirements as well as adopt the right approach in dealing with regulators. She is a seasoned practitioner who brought judgement and perspective to our team. She was able to quickly understand our school’s concept, which existed on paper and did not squarely fit into the current legislation or practice, and recommend a pragmatic approach. Her years of expertise in the legal field and with regulators combined with intimate knowledge of the current education system make her an invaluable strategic advisor. We would not hesitate to recommend Carol to anyone starting a school. We will also gladly use her again to help us on our journey of implementing our school’s vision.
“When we had a problem with a school that decided to take legal action, we sought out a person that could provide us with the right advice. Carol Anderson challenged my thoughts on what I believed was the best way to respond and really helped us to focus on structured approach to resolving the matter. With her help, we were able to settle the matter and will be forever grateful for the integrity, professionalism and care that Carol brought to the table.”
