Our children’s education is a top priority for all of us and the province of Manitoba takes education very seriously. Educating our children doesn’t just mean a brick and mortar building and some teachers and a principal. Our education system incorporates many professionals dedicated to ensuring our children have the best schooling possible. This includes all of the business management of Manitoba’s education system.
