Creating a Hopeful Vision

What are YOUR hopes for the future of public education in Alberta?

Alberta’s students need you at the table—literally. 

Here’s what we want to know: What are your hopes for Alberta’s children and our public schools so that they can thrive now—and into the future?

During this time of rapid change, we’re seeking your help to generate aspirational new ideas, approaches, and solutions for the future of public education in this province. Our ultimate goal is to advance and promote a hopeful vision for Alberta’s public education system. 

That’s why we’re hosting a number of roundtable discussions over the next few months—four (4) in-person and one (1) virtual. Your participation is essential.

This is a critical opportunity to discuss the challenges that students face while determining pathways of support moving forward. From there, we will develop and distribute our research to politicians, decision-makers, and stakeholders.
