Statement from Education Critic Carla Beck on the Educational Governance Review Report

We thank Mr. Perrins for the work that he and his team did on this very important initiative.

The options presented represent significant change and will have an effect on every student, parent, and teacher across Saskatchewan. I am disappointed that no option was presented to fix the system we currently have even though many believe it would beneficial to take that route. As I explained at the beginning of this initiative, I continue to be concerned that the Minister of Education is using this process as a way to fast track the plans he already has, without engaging in proper consultations. 

We in the Official Opposition also remain concerned that the Sask. Party said nothing about the restructuring school boards during the election. It was only after, that they started with their deep cuts, claw backs, and talks of their transformational change. It is also very troubling that the Minister still won’t commit to not replacing elected school board trustees with Sask. Party government appointees.

Saskatchewan’s NDP will continue to be active in our consultations with teachers, board members, and parents to ensure the best outcome for our students.
