NDP seeking feedback on state of education in Saskatchewan

Saskatchewan NDP Education Critic Carla Beck is looking to hear from teachers, educational assistants, staff, parents, administrators, and anyone else who cares about the future of the province’s education system. Today, Beck announced the launch of the Brighter Future education survey, seeking the input, ideas and experiences of Saskatchewan people regarding the state of our classrooms.

“We know that our classrooms are increasingly complex and under-resourced, and that’s taking a toll on staff, students and parents all across the province,” said Beck. “We want to hear from people what they’re experiencing and what Saskatchewan should be doing to build a brighter future for all of us.”

Beck said she believes the NDP Opposition can and should play a vital role in protecting and improving our schools, and that requires hearing directly from affected students, teachers, parents, staff and administrators, and elevating those voices wherever possible. The answers generated, Beck hopes, will help to shape the conversation about, and future of, education in our province.

“From everything we’ve heard so far, underfunded, crowded, and increasingly complex classrooms are the reality for students, teachers and support staff, but that shouldn’t be the norm moving forward,” Beck said. “We are committed to hearing and understanding the concerns and the ideas of Saskatchewan people, so that ultimately we can make this the best place in Canada to be a kid or raise a family.”
