The Government of NB has officially begun taking action to dissolve the Anglo East District Education Council (the DEC is the group who oversees the school district with a mission of providing "quality education and support to all students within the Anglophone East School District.")

Basically, the education council doesn't want to adhere to the policy because they feel it violates student rights/ the Province wants the policy enforced in schools to protect parent rights (*paraphrase)
Dissolving the DEC is a bit of a process and the Province has put that process in motion... meanwhile (quote from the article) "the DEC is prepared to defend its integrity through all available channels,"
