Fixing Education in Manitoba

This NDP government spends more on education than ever before yet Manitoba ranks last in the country for results in reading, math, and science.

We must provide a stronger way up for Manitoba’s children by improving our education results, focusing on reading at the critical early ages, empowering teachers to grade and guide students, and empowering parents to engage with schools by ensuring they know more about what is occurring in those schools.

A new Progressive Conservative government will:

  • Establish a ‘Read to Succeed’ initiative with reading labs and mentoring, so all children leaving Grade 3 can read at the highest national level.
  • Focus on the needs of the child by empowering teachers to evaluate students fully for their work including giving a zero grade for zero work
  • Empower parents to evaluate their child’s progress by providing more meaningful report cards.
