Honourable J. Alan McIsaacMinister of Education and Early Childhood DevelopmentHolman BuildingSummerside, PEDear Minister McIsaac:No responsibility is more vital to every Islander, nor indeed to the entire province, than theresponsibility of ensuring maximum possible effectiveness in our education system.Our schools should provide students with far more than basic knowledge and skill
they should fostercreativity, innovation, and a love of learning, and they should prepare students to participate fully insociety. Good governance in education is central to enabling our schools to offer each student themeans of achieving his or her very best.To fulfill our mandate, we have drawn extensively on research and the results of our consultations witheducation partners, key informants, students, and interested members of the Island population. We aregrateful to all who met with us, took part in our Community Conversations, and wrote to us. Their ideasand advice provided a wealth of insight and guidance.Serving as members of this Commission has been highly rewarding, and we sincerely hope that our workwill help those involved in the governance and delivery of education, to focus their energy and resourceson learning.

This report reflects the substantial contribution of two exceptional public servants, whose work was of tremendous benefit to the Commission as we carried out our task.
Ms. Janice Pettit, Senior Policy Analyst in the Executive Council Office organized the Commission’s
website and handled the administrative and logistical challenges associated with our five Community
Conversations and three evenings of Public Presentations. Because of Janice’s thorough, systematic and
positive approach to these responsibilities, we were able to proceed with ease and confidence.We extend a very special thank you to Ms. Wendy MacDonald, Clerk Assistant of the Executive Council,
whose service and dedication as the Commission’s lead researcher, was exemplary. Her ability to
source, synthesize and analyze research findings is truly remarkable; as a
result, the Commission’s
report is grounded in the most current and most relevant scholarship. Wendy spent countless hours
preparing background material, capturing the Commission’s discussions, developing large portions of 
the draft report, and coordinati
ng the many reviews and revisions. Wendy’s contribution to the
Commission was invaluable.
