The Alberta government is making dangerous changes to the public education curriculum—ignoring important lessons and overloading the curriculum with irrelevant information that isn’t age-appropriate.
The draft K-6 curriculum is being piloted in schools this fall. Created without proper consultation with teachers, it leaves out core lessons in history, wellness, and science – including dinosaurs. The Indigenous content is inauthentic, and the perspectives of women, LGBTQ2S+ and Francophone Albertans are ignored.
Funding cuts mean fewer programs, less support and lost opportunities. Bigger class sizes are leaving teachers struggling to provide support to kids that need it most.
Parents and teachers across the province are joining together to stand up for children and their futures. Take a stand with us—tell the government to put children first in our public education system.
In Alberta, public education refers to schools operated by Alberta’s public, separate, and Francophone school divisions.
