By now you will have heard the news about the release of the K-12 Education Review and Bill 64.  These items amount to seismic change to the public education system in Manitoba and there are several items of concern.

We are aware that there are many questions that need answers, and we commit to members that we will be carefully reviewing the documentation, accessing support from MTS, and consulting with our counterparts around the province.  We will keep you up to date with information as it becomes available.

Please stay informed by regularly visiting the MTS Website, following MTS on various social media platforms and the WTA on Twitter @WinnipegTA
