Education has always had the ground of importance as it tends to provide individuals with the required knowledge to handle things that come with life. Due to that, exploring the sector in different parts of the world will definitely give you an idea of how that nation treats the system of education. For that purpose, we are going to be looking into the educational sector of Nova Scotia.
The educational system of Nova Scotia was one that went through specific changes and adjustments. Since these changes turned out to be essential, they are highly regarded as aspects that changed things for the better. These changes came during 2018 and brought about a difference for the better. Through the report by Dr. Avis Glaze, things become vital, and the implications included a poll that surveyed the quality of education, with 46% classifying it as “excellent/fair.”
With those figures, it was understood that the quality of education was excellent and it can lead to a bright future. However, that does not eliminate problems that eventually come with time. Regardless of how good or excellent the system is, specific problems are bound to appear, and one should always take note of the same.
The different kinds of problems or issues that affected the system were labour issues, student assessment data, and other kinds of aspects. While they can be settled through a number of means, there were two developments that were kept pending. While the first development was about rights realized, the second was a call for a right that ought-to-be. With these elements missing from the main aspects of changes, things did not reach the complete cycle that one would have wanted them to.
The Current State of Affairs
With a pandemic causing havoc, educational institutions around the world had to adopt different methods to get things done. Nova Scotia’s public education system also had to go through the same procedure and bring out a difference that made sense. But the real deal of the matter began when students and teachers returned to their old classrooms. The government decided to dissolve elected school boards in the spring, thereby raising concerns from parents.
However, education Minister Zach Churchill assured that the department would listen to the community. According to the new system, the administrative staff from each province’s seven regional school boards are very much a part of the picture, and their offices are re-dubbed as regional centres for education. With these changes coming in at full swing, parents seem to be worried about the way ahead. Since we need to wait, watch and learn the new system, the credibility of the same can be understood through time.
