Northern SK postsecondary teaching program to lose funding

August 24, 2016

The Saskatchewan government plans to discontinue funding for a postsecondary teaching program in the province’s north, reports CBC. Based in La Ronge, the Northern Teacher Education Program states that it was informed last week that its funding would end after July 31, 2017. The program and its counterpart, Northern Professional Access College, have operated for 40 years and currently offer a four-year education degree as well as a bachelor of arts in Indigenous studies. SK Advanced Education Deputy Minister Louise Greenberg adds that students will continue to receive university-level training in La Ronge in a revised form. CBC | NationTalk | StarPhoenix | Global News
