Students will spend more time on literacy and math in the classroom and less time writing standardized tests under the province's new plan for education.

The action plan also calls for a stronger system of evaluating teachers and asks the auditor general to investigate the efficiency of school boards.

The changes were announced Thursday as Education Minister Karen Casey delivered her response to the report of the Minister's Panel on Education.
