Regina residents are encouraged to attend a series of public meetings about the future of education.
The Saskatchewan Teacher’s federation, along with Regina Public School Teachers’ Association are holding the meetings, and will discuss a number of topics including student stress.
President of RPSTA Jeff Perry said he would like to see a plan developed that takes the education sector into 2020 and beyond.
“We need a longer term plan or vision for education that takes us beyond simple annual cycle(s), or even a government cycle,” Perry said. “We need something that we can respond to and plan for moving ahead.”
Perry said technology is one of the topics that will be discussed.
“We have to teach balances in that; some things how do we operate without technology, but also how do we operate with new technology, and support that with new technology for students to learn,” Perry said. “But also respond to what are the concerns with technology, what are the impacts of technology.”
The first meeting is being held Tuesday at F.W. Johnson Collegiate.
Ecole Centennial School will host a meeting Wednesday, then Sheldon Williams Collegiate will hold one Sunday. Lastly, Seven stones Community school will have the final meeting on Monday.
