Education in Saskatchewan is organized by the various School Divisions applying a curriculum of learning set out by the Government of Saskatchewan department, the Ministry of Learning. The curriculum set sets to develop skills, knowledge, understanding to improve the quality of life. June 22, 1915, Hon. Walter Scott, Premier and Minister of Education, set out as his mandate the "purpose of procuring for the children of Saskatchewan a better education and an education of greater service and utility to meet the conditions of the chief industry in the Province, which is agriculture”.[1] Education facilitates the cultural and regional socialization of an individual through the realisation of their self-potential and latent talents. Historically, the region of Saskatchewan needed successful homesteaders so the focus was to develop a unified language for successful economic trading, and agricultural understanding to develop goods, livestock and cash crops to trade. [2] After the mechanized advancements following [[World War II}} and the industrial revolution, the primary employment agriculture sector of farming was not as labour intensive. Individuals focused on secondary industries such as manufacturing and construction, as well as tertiary employment like transportation, trade, finance and services. Schools became technologically more advanced and adapted to supply resources for this growing demand and change of focus.[3]
