“Modeling respect, learning and responsibility to motivate students to become productive, caring citizens.”

The Manitoba Commission on Kindergarten to Grade 12 Education

The Manitoba Commission on Kindergarten to Grade 12 Education is asking for your thoughts on the future of our education system. Your views and opinions will be an important part of the commission’s comprehensive, independent review of our province’s elementary and secondary education system. This is the first review of its kind in decades.

Students, parents, educators, school boards, academics, Indigenous organizations, la francophonie, municipal councils, professional organizations, the business community and the general public – from across Manitoba – are invited to participate in this review. The commission is seeking comments on a wide range of topics in the Kindergarten to Grade 12 system, including:

  • student learning
  • teaching
  • accountability for student learning
  • governance
  • funding

The information you provide will help the commission develop its recommendations. Those recommendations will be designed to create an education system that achieves better outcomes for students and reflects the economic and societal needs of Manitobans, both today and in the future.
