Standardized testing forging ahead

Standardized testing looked to be hold as of Aug. 30, when education deputy minister Dan Florizone told the media that the ministry will conduct an intense period of consultation with teachers to sort out education priorities.  But education minister Russ Marchuk offered a feisty defense of testing the following week, vowing the tests would go ahead. Marchuk did say there would be consultation first, although his comments indicate the consultation has a pre-determined outcome.  On a more promising note, it seems the Task Force on First Nations and Metis Education recommendations are not on hold. Both news reports are included in link below.
