“The NDP government has quietly released a draft version of the Liberal’s rural education report.

The report found that “stable and predictable funding is critical for education” and that funding based on enrolment does not reflect the higher costs of delivering programs and services in low enrolment and remote communities.

The report recommends a comprehensive review of the K to 12 funding allocation system “to better reflect the operational and education realities of operating schools in rural and remote communities.”

It also recommends the province assist boards of education to keep schools open “where it makes education sense to do so,” and where communities may be adversely impacted.”
