The comment about voting disrupting the school day is alittle disturbing. I remember as a Grade 3 student getting an early civics lesson when our school was used as a polling place and the teacher had an opportunity to talk to us about democracy. We even had a tour of the voting booth.

Using schools can also make for a good location as opposed to that large, central spot. Since most children can walk to their neighbourhood schools, it stands to reason that these places would be most convenient for voters who can also walk. The single, central location sounds like it would benefit the returning officer but it's the voter who should be afforded the most convenience, IMO.
