The Manitoba government is setting up a Provincial Curriculum Advisory Panel that will provide input on the development of a framework for curriculum to advance education as part of the Better Education Starts Today strategy. Education Minister Cliff Cullen says now is the time to ensure we have a wide variety of voices heard on where we can improve literacy, numeracy and creativity, instill best practices in instruction and assessment and create a curriculum that reflects the diversity of Manitoba’s communities.
The panel will be up to 15 members from a broad representation of individuals and organizations including students, parents, educators, school and system leaders, Indigenous partners and community stakeholders to draw on a wide range of perspectives and skills. Interested individuals can submit applications by Friday and will serve a term from May to next June. The Panel terms of reference and expression of interest application can be found at www.bettereducationmb.ca.
