Manitoba Liberals are backing calls of Safe September Manitoba a coalition of concerned parents, teachers, and educators, who have given the PC’s a failing grade.
Liberal Leader Dougald Lamont said remote learning is the quote ultimate in social distaining and it would allow for smaller class sizes and staff and students with immune challenges would all be able to work and learn safely.
According to a media release while other provinces like Saskatchewan are providing an option for remote learning the Pallitser government isn’t.
As a result Manitoba parents that are concerned about sending their children back to school and have no choice but to take them out of the public system and home school them instead.
The liberals are calling on the PC”s to support the Safe September Manitoba plan which involves, allowing school boards to delay the return of school until plans are in place, ensure there is enough room for social distancing, requiring mandatory masks, and ensuring that remote learning is available.
