2017-18 At a Glance
“Two roads diverged in the wood, and I – I took the one less travelled by, and that has made all the difference” (Robert Frost).
Teachers and the Federation know the current one-size-fits-all, do-more-with-less model of education isn’t working – not for you and not for your students. As a province, we find ourselves currently at a fork in the education road. Where do we go from here? Which path do we choose?
If the 2017-18 At a Glancereport is any indication, many of you are already bravely choosing the path less travelled. From advocating for education through your participation in Pick a Premier to openly sharing your stories about the day-to-day realities you face, more teachers are choosing to stand up and speak out. As your Federation we’ve been there with you every step of the way, and we’ll continue to march down the path together.
Take a look at what the Federation and Saskatchewan teachers have already accomplished and rest assured, we’re just getting started. Let’s build on this momentum by inviting the public to participate in the Re-Imagine Education initiative, as we envision what the future might look like and discuss the challenges facing education today.
Tomorrow’s leaders are in today’s classroom; but it’s time for today’s leaders to detour from the status quo, in order to ensure the needs of teachers and students are met now and for years to come.
