Report calls for separation of representative and regulatory functions for Saskatchewan's teachers

For the Sake of Students: Current and Future Teacher Regulation in the Province of Saskatchewan, an independent report commissioned by the provincial government of Saskatchewan, has called for the separation of the representative and regulatory functions for the province's teachers. Currently the Saskatchewan Teachers’ Federation performs both functions in the province. The document states that "The process for regulating teacher performance and conduct is more convoluted and fraught with risk of conflict of interest than is the regulatory process for any other profession in Saskatchewan." The report, authored by Dr. Dennis Kendel, a former registrar of the College of Physicians and Surgeons, recommends the creation of a separate regulatory body for teachers. It further suggests that the provincial government look at the model currently used by the Ontario College of Teachers. It also recommends postponing legislative action until late 2014 to allow for consultation over the best regulatory model to use.
