NDP Leader Cam Broten says voters should be concerned about what a re-elected Saskatchewan Party government would do to education.
Campaigning in Martensville, Broten suggests there are plans to cut spending on schools and classrooms.
Broten notes that the Sask. Party makes no mention of education in its election platform.
He says his visit to Martensville comes days after the Prairie Spirit School Division warned that 75 teachers and educational assistants may have to be laid off.
Broten says the government cut $51.3 million from education in the first nine months of the fiscal year.
The Sask. Party says the government has increased overall education funding by 112 per cent since 2007.
