KAP submission to provincial education review

June 5, 2019

In response to the provincial government's review of the education system, the taxation committee of KAP submitted feedback on key issues identified by the province. While KAP does not have specific policy on many of the details included in the current review, as representatives of Manitoba’s farmers, we are advocates for rural schools and their students.

 

Key pieces of the submission focused on: 

- providing equitable learning opportunities for all students, ensuring rural and urban students have the same access to learning opportunities and resources.

- the preservation of local autonomy and the ability of locally elected trustees to respond to the specific requirements that their communities want for their schools.

- the increasingly disproportionate amount of the province’s education bill that is paid for by Manitoba’s farmers.

- moving away from funding education through property taxes and evaluate alternative funding methods in Manitoba, focusing on a more equitable and sustainable funding model.
