Smith kicks off Southern Alberta education tour
EDMONTON, AB (October 3, 2016): Today, Wildrose Shadow Education Minister Mark Smith kicked off his Conversations in Education consultation tour across southern Alberta.
“There are no shortage of topics that parents are worried about when it comes to the future of Alberta’s education system,” Smith said. “I’m excited to meet with local school boards, speak with students, and hear from teachers as well as parents about how we can make our education system one of the best in the world.”
Smith will visit school boards, speak to high school classes and hold forums with parents seeking feedback.
Albertans are encouraged to provide feedback through a form available online.
“Whether it’s declining outcomes for students, increasing costs or concerns about maintaining choice and diversity throughout our education system, Wildrose wants to hear feedback about how we can best advocate for our education system,” Smith said.
