The Kids and Learning First Plan

Vic Fleury: President of the Nova Scotia School Boards Association

After six years, there's once again a master plan for primary to 12 education in Nova Scotia.

The Kids and Learning First plan was released on Friday by Education Minister Ramona Jennox.

It outlines several strategies and priorities for improving math and literacy scores in the province while keeping class sizes small.

The plan also calls for more co-op programs and hands-on skills training at the high school level.

But there are questions around how closely the plan can be implemented, given the possibility of more funding cuts to school boards in the up-coming budget.

Vic Fleury is the President of the Nova Scotia School Boards Association.
