Scrap the draft curriculum

The proposed K-6 curriculum developed by the UCP has been resoundingly rejected by 58 of 61 school boards in Alberta. It is developmentally inappropriate, prioritizes rote learning over deep engagement, and embeds a troubling colonial worldview in its depiction of Canadian and world history, cultures, and religions. With little input from the people who know learners best – educators – this curriculum is a step backwards for Alberta students.

As trustee, I will add my voice to the tens of thousands of Albertans – parents, educators, boards, and supporters of evidence-based public education – to call on the Minister for Education to return to the 2018 draft, involve teachers and students, and work to develop a truly world-class curriculum for Alberta.
