There’s a new twist in a court case stemming from a fight between Yorkton’s 2 main school divisions.
Last week, a Court of Queen’s Bench judge released a decision that said the provincial government must stop paying for non-Catholic students to attend Catholic schools in Saskatchewan.
Now, the Saskatchewan Catholic School Boards Association said it plans to appeal that ruling.
The announcement caused waves across the province, with Education Minister Don Morgan saying some schools could become overcrowded while other schools would see vastly reduced numbers of students.
Saskatchewan Premier Brad Wall stated the decision isn’t in the best interest of parents or students, and ‘simply cannot stand’.
