CBU hopes to offer expanded education programs

December 18, 2007

The results of a government-appointed panel on teacher education in Nova Scotia were due to be delivered this month, and Cape Breton University is waiting with bated breath.  Currently, CBU is offering Memorial University's program in Cape Breton -- and about $400,000 in tuition fees go to MUN annually.  If approved, CBU would like to offer a similar, 16-month program that would be extended to include elementary teachers and a special stream for Mi'kmaq students.
