Premier Opens Application Process for Task Force on Improving Educational Outcomes

The Provincial Government is committed to building a K-12 education system which better engages students in learning and improves student outcomes. The Honourable Dwight Ball, Premier of Newfoundland and Labrador, today began the process to select the Premier’s Task Force on Improving Educational Outcomes with a mandate to examine the current system and recommend improvements.

“Students throughout Newfoundland and Labrador deserve the best possible opportunity to receive a high quality education. We committed to establishing the Premier’s Task Force on Improving Educational Outcomes so that we can get a complete picture of our strengths and where we need to improve. The task force will review jurisdictional best practices and engage with teachers, parents, educational experts, students and other stakeholders. At the end of the process we will have a clear path and plan to improve student outcomes.”
– The Honourable Dwight Ball, Premier of Newfoundland and Labrador

The task force, which will be composed of a chairperson and three members, will be selected through the merit-based appointment process and will prepare a report for the Provincial Government with recommendations. Several of the key areas the task force will review include: early learning, mathematics, reading, inclusive education, student mental health and wellness, multicultural education, Indigenous education, cooperative education and teacher education and professional development.

“These recommendations from the task force will lead to the development of a comprehensive action plan to improve the learning experience for students, prepare them for the future and be responsive to the ever-changing educational environment. We all have a vested interest in improving educational outcomes and I look forward to seeing the work of the task force get underway.”
– The Honourable Dale Kirby, Minister of Education and Early Childhood Development
