Motion 504 called on the government to simply affirm that it will not attempt to limit access to differing types of education options for Alberta families. This range of educational delivery options includes home, charter, private, Francophone, separate or public school systems.
“Alberta has a long and proud tradition of offering parents and students a wide array of choices when it comes to their education,” said McIver. “The choices that are offered respect the diversity of backgrounds, needs and interests of Alberta families and this government must continue to respect that diversity. It is also positive to see this government respect legislative tradition and withdraw their previous amendment.”
