Saskatchewan Teachers’ Federation Response to the passing of Bill 137

October 20, 2023
Saskatoon, Saskatchewan

In response to the passing of Bill 137, The Parents Bill of Rights, STF President Samantha Becotte has issued the following statement:

“Today’s passage of Bill 137 places every teacher in Saskatchewan in a difficult position: do they obey the law, thereby potentially placing a child in an extremely dangerous position or ignore it and leave themselves open to legal jeopardy.”

“This bill was passed without consultations with parents, school board members, school administrators, mental health experts or the STF. It is yet another sign that this government isn’t serious about forging cooperative and mutually beneficial relationships in the education sector.”
