The government of Saskatchewan is saying ‘thank you’ to teachers.
The province announced this week, February 11-17th, is Teacher/Staff Appreciation Week.
Deputy Premier and Minister of Education Gord Wyant said Saskatchewan’s educators deserve recognition for the great work they do.
“It’s an opportunity for Saskatchewan residents to recognize the important role that teachers and staff play in our education system,” said Wyant. “It’s important to make sure we recognize that.”
Wyant said the government is doing more than just saying they appreciate teachers, they’re acting to back it up. One way they are doing that is by keeping their campaign promise to increase investments into the Saskatchewan education system.
“Showing our commitment to enhancing the relationship between the government and the education sector by providing more financing, more funding, I think it’s an important signal.”
