Opposition Urges Government to Save School Support Jobs

There is optimism that some school support jobs that were cut earlier this year can be saved. Both the New Brunswick Teacher's Association and the Provincial opposition are urging Education Minister Roland Hache to use the province's Innovative Learning Fund to save some positions.

Haché recently froze the 3.4 million dollar program, initially budgeted at 5 million dollars. Opposition Leader David Alward says the frozen funds won't reverse all of the education cuts but is insisting they be used to relieve some of the damage.
