The Alberta Liberal Caucus believes that all students have the right to receive the best possible education. Alberta’s students should not have to suffer as a result of inadequate planning by the Stelmach Administration. Albertans saw what happened in the early 1990s when this Government made drastic and painful changes to our education system under the cover of a sham consultation process. Now it seems as though those mistakes are being repeated.
As Alberta’s Official Opposition, the Alberta Liberal Caucus will continue to challenge the Stelmach Administration to adequately fund the education of Alberta’s children. A large part of our job as Official Opposition is bringing forward the issues and concerns of Albertans – we have heard from students, parents, teachers, and trustees from across this province and we want to bring forward your concerns to the government and to the public.
This government needs to start viewing education as an investment priority, rather than a liability. The Alberta Liberals have a plan for fiscal sustainability that would see money properly invested in the Heritage Fund, where it could then earn interest to fund government initiatives, of which education should be a priority. Details on our fiscal and education policies can be found on our webpage at www.albertaliberalcaucus.com
