Join Tell Them Tuesday and tell Saskatchewan's Government what is important to you. 

Let Government know students and teachers matter. End the chronic underfunding now.

Teachers continue to be asked to do more with less. There is no room for “more”. Chronic underfunding has created crowded classrooms where students’ diverse needs cannot be met. 

Saskatchewan students deserve a high-quality education through a properly funded public education system. 

Crowded and overly complex classrooms mean students’ needs aren’t met and learning outcomes are negatively impacted. 

Chronic underfunding has created crowded classrooms where students’ needs cannot be fully met.
