Thank you, Mr. Speaker. So the documentation the Minister has would be able to give us a breakdown for each particular school board and particular schools as to the pupil/teacher ratios. Would that be correct?

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. Mr. Speaker, I have the official, the deputy and the director of finance on notice to stand by for direction from the honourable Member and his colleagues as to how they would like to address this, but yes, they have all the information that the Member could want and we are more then willing to take the time to go over it with you to whatever level of detail the Members think necessary. Thank you.

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. My question is to the Minister of Education, Culture and Employment, Mr. Miltenberger. All my questions, Mr. Speaker, will be around the third paragraph of his statement. The Minister has stated that more students than ever are staying at home to complete their schooling which helps to maintain the support system of family and friends and he also tells us the number of graduates are up significantly. Could the Minister give us a breakdown of the percentage increase by region of the increase in graduating students for the past few years? Thank you, Mr. Speaker

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. Mr. Speaker, I can indicate that secondary school participation has increased from 56 percent in 1985 to 90 percent in 1997. I can indicate that the current rate of graduates for this year, 1999, was somewhat less then 1994-95. If all the questions the Member asked I think are addressed in here. I cannot give him the regional break down as I stand here, but once again I can commit to giving him all the breakdowns that he would like in

terms of, by region, by ethnicity and by community, if that is what he would like. Thank you.

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. Could the Minister tell us in his statement that more students than ever are staying at home, in their home community. Could the Minister tell us the number of communities that have high school education programs available to their residents? Thank you, Mr. Speaker.

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. I can give him a percentage, 98 percent of the communities have high school extensions. If he wants to know which communities, once again I would have to commit to get back to him and itemize them all for him. Thank you.

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. On the Minister same paragraph, he talks about adult basic education classes are full. Can the Minister tell me approximately what portion of his budget would be dedicated to adult basic education? Thank you, Mr. Speaker.
