The Thompson Local News


The School District of Mystery Lake (SDML) will be getting a boost in funding for the 2018-2019 school year.

 

Thompson MLA Kelly Bindle spoke in the Provincial Legislature earlier this week, outlining what the Pallister government is doing to support public schools here in Manitoba.

 

Bindle said that the government is investing $1.3B in Manitoba Public Schools for the upcoming school year, which is an increase of $6.6M. He added that the SDML will be getting an additional $2.3M, which is a 7.4% increase.

 

Bindle, who serves as the Legislative Assistant to the Minister of Growth, Enterprise and Trade, went on to say that the investments being made to point the Province in the right direction after what he called 17 years of mismanagement under the previous NDP government. During that time, Bindle said that the high school dropout rate was second highest in Canada, and math, science and reading scores were the lowest among the provinces.

 

Bindle said that part of their new approach is to have one collective bargaining agreement for teachers, rather than local deals being reached in each school district. He also added that the NDP are trying to “dupe teachers with fake news” about the government’s public sector wage freeze.

 

Bindle added that the current Progressive Conservative government is investing more in education than their NDP predecessors ever did.
