Report will help government achieve goals set out in 10-year education plans, Minister says

New Brunswick's Education Minister says a report on a teaching model that accommodates learning differences will help the government achieve a number of objectives set out it its 10-year education plans.

Brian Kenny says the Universal Design for Learning model is the culmination of the hard work of dedicated educators committed to improve students' learning experience.

Teachers monitoring the program that was implemented in several New Brunswick schools found improved test scores among high school math students as well as improved student engagement in Grade 7 and 8 social studies classes.

The Bathurst-West-Beresford MLA says he's proud teachers are learning from each other and collaborating on, what he calls, a professional learning opportunity.
