New Education Plan For Manitoba

New Education Plan

WINNIPEG - The Manitoba government is taking another shot at reforming the education system.

This time, it's leaving elected school boards in place, scrapping the previous approach to eliminate them which was very unpopular.

Some proposals from the original plan are back, including a new regulatory body to certify teachers.

There are also plans for a new online high school, new ways to assess students in their early school years and a new attendance policy that would consider things like poverty.

Alan Campbell, president of the Manitoba School Boards, calls it a move in the right direction and the Manitoba Teachers' Society says it's encouraging.
