In our 2013 platform, we committed to investing in our education system to create a better future for our kids. And we’ve delivered on that promise. Over the past four years, we’ve re-invested the $65 million that was taken out of the classroom by the NDP. We introduced class caps in elementary schools and delivered a streamlined curriculum for grades P-3, focused on math and literacy. We hired 331 more classroom teachers, 103 literacy strategy teachers (reading recovery, literacy leads and mentors), 91 math teachers (supporting our math strategy) and seven guidance counsellors. Recovering from the cuts to our public education system has not been easy and the changes have not happened quickly enough, but we remain committed to improving Nova Scotia’s classrooms.
