Education Minister must resign from cabinet or be fired

Following the Minister of Education’s reckless and misleading comments about treaty education, the Saskatchewan NDP is calling on the minister to immediately resign from her position in cabinet. 

“It’s clear that the minister has betrayed the trust of teachers, students, and parents. Her reluctant and forced apologies ring hollow,” said NDP Education Critic Carla Beck. “The people of this province deserve someone who will put students first, not someone who will use their position of power to further their own interests. If the Minister won’t resign, the Premier should fire her.”

In her previous role as Minister of Advanced Education, Minister Eyre oversaw the Sask. Party’s shutting down of NORTEP/NORPAC. Despite serious concerns in the community and an incredible drop in enrollment following the cut, the Minister has bragged in the media about how well that process was going.

The Minister’s comments on treaty education have been widely condemned including by Indigenous leaders, the Saskatchewan Teachers Federation, and parents across the province.

 “The minister’s misunderstanding of treaty education and her misleading comments about curriculum are dangerous and fly in the face of reconciliation,” Beck said. “The minister has shown she’s willing to put her own agenda ahead of her duties and commitment to the people of the province as Education Minister. This simply cannot stand. The people of Saskatchewan deserve better.”
