NDP Demands Accountability and Leadership on Education

   FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE? – Charlottetown, PE – (September 1, 2015)  NDP Leader wants answers from the Liberal government and  a complete 180 degree turn  around on how education is run in the province. “ Back on June 22nd, I asked the Minister of  Education two very simple questions?   1. Can he show what determines class composition and teacher­to­student ratios? (Are principals, custodians, and guidance counselors factored into his teacher­to student ratio)? 2. Can the Minister please explain the formula used to determine the classroom needs of  students (including those with behavioral issues, learning disabilities, and English as a  second language)? “The Minister has ignored this simple request, and government has flip­flopped on teacher cuts”? explained Redmond. The first 100 days has not been a very strong indication of the  Premiers Leadership skills”, stated Redmond.     The NDP also recognizes that the teachers on PEI are returning to the classroom without a  contract, as of AUG. 31, 2015. In addition to the lack of respect with contract negotiations, the  province has since cut 7 positions in the board office. “How do these cuts affect curriculum  development”?, asked Redmond. Redmond believes the province should not be looking at education as a line item on a budget  sheet but rather than an investment into our future as a province.The NDP would like the  province to look at these very important areas: -­Exposing our children to music, art, dance, sport and recreation  ­ -A minimum of one hour of daily physical activity for every PEI student. -­Ending the practice of teachers’ spending out of pocket for everyday classroom needs  ­A strong emphasis on reading, writing and math ­-A return to the Provincial Vocational Institute  (PVI), allowing more opportunity for young  people to learn trades, carpentry, electronics, plumbing and non traditional trades   ­Addressing the unacceptable rates of child hunger on PEI, a universal breakfast & lunch  program across PEI.  “As we enter a new school year, we need a new approach, one that respects our teachers,  ...
