A New Direction for Education

Progressive Conservative Party Leader Rob Lantz today released his party’s education platform at a news conference in Stratford.

The platform outlined reforms designed to raise standards and improve academic performance.

“A strong school system is essential to our future economic growth. We need a new direction for education that helps develop a well educated and well trained skilled workforce," Lantz said.

Highlights of the platform include maximum class sizes for Island schools; ending the provincial assessment program, redirecting staff and resources back into the classroom; putting wireless internet access in all Island schools within first year of taking office; reinstating elected school boards to be scheduled with other elections to increase voter turnout; and increasing the George Coles Bursary to $5,000.
