Manitoba

There has been a change of government in Manitoba – with the shift in government to Conservative the focus has become increasing student literacy/numeracy – new deputy minister and assistant deputies as well – conducted a review of special education funding and programs which included broad consultation lead by a task force – resulted in unanimous recommendations that have been endorsed by the Minister – MASS is planning a large conference on human rights in partnership with the Manitoba Teachers’ Society – one of the strengths in Manitoba has been collaboration amongst the partners – Indigenous education is still a large focus
