Events in Manitoba History: White Commission (1991-1993)

This commission, announced by the Manitoba government in May 1991 and chaired by educator Roy White, examined the changes that would be required to bring the Manitoba Public Schools Act in line with the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms. Among the issues reviewed by the commission were: religious instruction and corporal punishment, powers of the Education Minister and local school boards, accountability of school boards and private schools, home schooling, and enforcement of school attendance.
