Help Shape Our Education System. Participate in the Manitoba Government K-12 Education Review.

Commission Mandate


The Manitoba Commission on Kindergarten to Grade 12 Education will carry out an independent review of our province’s K to 12 education system. Its goal will be improving outcomes for students, ensuring long-term sustainability and enhancing public confidence in our education system. The commission will:

  • propose a renewed vision for K to 12 education
  • make bold recommendations that inspire excellence in teaching and learning, and ignite positive, progressive change in existing systems, structures and programs
  • look at the K to 12 system as a continuum that takes an integrated, lifelong approach to learning, with strong links between early learning, post-secondary education and labour market success.

The commission will consult with students, parents, educators, school boards, academics, Indigenous organizations, la francophonie, municipal councils, professional organizations, the business community and members of the public – from across Manitoba. The commission will also conduct extensive research and study best practices.

The commission will focus on:

  • A long-term vision – Given how rapidly the world is changing, what should our goals and purpose be for Kindergarten to Grade 12 education?
  • Student learning – How do we help our students achieve excellence?
  • Teaching – How can we help teachers and school leaders to achieve better outcomes?
  • Accountability for student learning – How do we develop a stronger sense of shared accountability for student learning and an understanding that every member of the education team (e.g., principals, teachers, maintenance staff, bus drivers, administration staff) has an important role to play?
  • Governance – What governance structures do we need to put in place to make our education system more relevant and better coordinated?
  • Funding – How do we ensure that our education system is sustainable, and that it provides equitable learning opportunities for students of all ages?
