The Minister of Education says we are living in a “transformational moment,” which will come to light when the Liberal Government announces how it’s going to fix the problems with inclusive education outlined in the Premier’s Task Force on Education.
“Now is the Time,” which was commissioned by Premier Dwight Ball shortly after taking office, was released last year. It made 85 recommendations, 15 of which have been implemented.
Minister Dale Kirby told the House of Assembly today that the full response will come on Budget Day, March 27. He blames the previous Tory Administration for creating many of the problems by not doing any consultation.
He says they foisted it onto the system and created numerous stresses and strains. There will be better supports in our schools, and a path put forward for early childhood literacy intervention.
