Education Minister Responds to Auditor General’s Report

WHITEHORSE – Minister of Education Patrick Rouble has received the Auditor General’s report on Public Schools and Advanced Education.

“Having an outside audit done is always a healthy process as it allows for a different perspective,” Rouble said.

The Auditor General’s report examines operational issues and will be discussed with the Public Accounts Committee next week.

“The department is looking forward to having an open discussion with the Public Accounts Committee to provide information on the operational issues raised by the report,” Rouble said. “We continue to make positive changes in order to meet the needs of Yukoners and this will be an excellent opportunity to detail the progress made.”

Department officials will answer questions from members of the Standing Committee on Public Accounts at the Legislative Assembly on February 6.
