The Town of Kindersley was the site for one of 35 Saskatchewan Teachers' Federation demonstration sites back on Monday, January 22.
In the time since there have not been any more further indications on action from both the Government of Saskatchewan and Saskatchewan Teachers' Federation, though both sides did provide some points.
In a continued follow up with the Sun West Teachers’ Association, the group shared that based on sign-in sheets exactly 168 teachers were present for the day. Teachers from Kindersley, Coleville, Plenty, Kerrobert, Luseland, Marengo, Eatonia, Eston, Elrose, Kyle, D'Arcy, and local colony schools all met at the office of Kindersley MLA Ken Francis.
The Government hasn't been silent on the state of education, but not much has been shared publicly regarding the protests. Following the first day of job action, Saskatchewan's Education Minister Jeremy Cockrill made stops in Kyle, Rosetown, and Swift Current.
On January 23, the Minister also shared the following post about education funding in Saskatchewan.
Our Saskatchewan Party government continues to make record investments in education. $2.1 billion has been invested in the 2023-24 school year, marking a $89 million increase from the 2022-23 school year to ensure students continue to have access to a high-quality education. pic.twitter.com/gcfhuEfasE— Jeremy Cockrill (@jeremycockrill) January 24, 2024
