On Tuesday January 23, 2018, Dr. Avis Glaze released her report containing 22 “Recommendations” that would negatively impact Nova Scotia Public Education. One day later, the Nova Scotia Government announced its plan to implement the entire report. This was done without any consultation. The timelines and content of the report would suggest that Dr. Glaze was commissioned to write a report to mirror page 17 found in the Minister's Action Plan 2015. On January 26, 2018 the House was recalled to sit on February 27, 2018.
This site will provide members with the timeline of NSTU’s actions and supporting documents. We will be accepting questions from our members regarding all information distributed in the weeks ahead. The NSTU is asking its members to remain informed and act on behalf of public education, students and teachers.

Raising the bar? A modest proposal
In order to convey to elected MLA’s across Nova Scotia the damaging effects that implementing the Glaze Report (“Raise the Bar”) will have on students and public education in Nova Scotia, the NSTU is requesting that any interested individual print and sign the posted petition and solicit twenty-one (21) additional signatures from the Nova Scotia voting public. Each signature should be accompanied by the person’s city/town and province. (E.g. Jane Smith, Digby, NS)
