Sarah Hoffman, NDP Critic for Education, made the following statement today in response to news that the Calgary Board of Education have joined at least ten Alberta school boards that have stated they will not pilot the draft K-6 curriculum:

“Alberta’s largest school board, the Calgary Board of Education, has now rejected Jason Kenney’s flawed curriculum. We know that the UCP curriculum will not prepare students for advanced education and their future careers.

“More than ten, including three of the province’s four largest school boards, have now taken a stand against the Premier’s plan for educating Alberta children. I hope the Government will finally listen to the people of this province and put an immediate halt to the curriculum pilots. Kids deserve better.”
