Participate in Manitoba’s K-12 Education Review

Your voice matters when it comes to Kindergarten to Grade 12 education in Manitoba! Register now to attend an interactive workshop at www.edu.gov.mb.ca/educationreview/consultation.html and remember, #LocalVoicesLocalChoices still matter to our kids and communities!

The Manitoba government has commenced a review of Manitoba’s education system and you can participate to help influence the future of education in Manitoba!

The purpose of the Manitoba Commission on Kindergarten to Grade 12 Education is to “carry out an independent review of the province’s K to 12 education system.  Its goal will be improving outcomes for students, ensuring long-term sustainability and enhancing public confidence in our education system.”

The commission will focus on:

  • A long-term vision – Given how rapidly the world is changing, what should our goals and purpose be for Kindergarten to Grade 12 education?
  • Student learning – How do we help our students achieve excellence?
  • Teaching – How can we help teachers and school leaders to achieve better outcomes?
  • Accountability for student learning – How do we develop a stronger sense of shared accountability for student learning and an understanding that every member of the education team (e.g., principals, teachers, support staff, maintenance staff, bus drivers, administration staff) has an important role to play?
  • Governance – What governance structures do we need to put in place to make our education system more relevant and better coordinated?
  • Funding – How do we ensure that our education system is sustainable, and that it provides equitable learning opportunities for students of all ages?

Two matters which may be under consideration in this review are:

  1. The large-scale amalgamation of the current 37 elected school boards in our province.
  2. The possible move to appointed, rather than elected school boards.

School boards are our grassroots and they have the pulse of the community.  Either of these changes would severely undermine the ability of the communities to shape their local schools.  Together both of these matters could silence the community’s voice in education completely.

You are encouraged to participate in the review in whatever way you can.  As a citizen of Manitoba, a key stakeholder in education, your voice in the review is important.

There are several ways you can participate in the discussion / consultation:

There will be an Interactive Public Workshop in Brandon on May 9, 2019 at the Clarion Hotel & Suites.  You will need to register to attend this workshop.

Thank you for your attention and anticipated participation in the K-12 Education Review!
