NDP pushes for more funding for Sask schools


The NDP is calling on the SaskParty government to cover a huge shortfall in school funding in Saskatchewan.

Opposition leader Ryan Meili called on the Moe government to hold a mid-year review of school funding and ensure classroom size does not exceed 2 dozen kids.

He says enrollment is up 2 thousand students this year.

Premier Scott Moe says the province has a strong education system with the province providing more than 2.5 billion dollars to education costs this year.

He says there is additional funding for speech language pathologists, occupational therapists and psychologists in schools.

Moe says a committee has been formed by the minister of Education to look at class size in schools.
