NSTU hoping to build a collaborative relationship with new government

(Halifax-Kjipuktuk, NS) NSTU President Paul Wozney says he is looking forward to working with the new PC government and is hopeful a more positive public dialogue emerges on education issues.

“For the first time in a generation the NSTU has an opportunity to build a new and more collaborative relationship with government and hopefully repair some of the damage from recent years,” says Wozney. “Nova Scotians expect the NSTU and Government to partner and identify and implement solutions in our schools that benefit students, families, school staff and communities. This Government has demonstrated an initial willingness to work differently with teachers in how it approached announcing the Return to School plan. This is an important step in building trust and fostering a shared ability to address issues collaboratively.”

Wozney is also extending congratulations to new the new Minister of Education and Early Childhood Development, Becky Druhan.

“I’m looking forward sitting down with Minister Druhan to discuss how we can implement positive reforms in our classrooms,” says Wozney. “Obviously, keeping schools safe from COVID-19 remains the top priority, but there are other areas within our public education system where progress is long overdue and I’m looking forward to exchanging ideas about how we can find solutions to these challenges.”
