The Education Partnership Table, established in 2004, is a practical forum designed to get broad and diverse insights from the education sector on provincial education policy early in the government's policy development process. Participants include groups and associations representing students, parents, trustees, directors of education, supervisory officers, teachers, support workers and principals.
Collaboration is needed to bring real, positive change to the education system and to achieve better results for students.
Participants have the opportunity to contribute to the common public interest in publicly funded education. In return, they agree to work toward consensus and, wherever possible, to raise issues first at the Table for all to examine and help address collectively.
Mini-papers are brought to the Table to facilitate discussions. Comments, suggestions or ideas about the following mini-papers are welcome.
