Enough is enough.
But what about the ability to "change things from the inside"? Sadly, that ship has sailed. They clearly don't care about you or me or anyone else but a small fringe group of ideological radicals. The UCP deliberately cut out teachers and education professionals from this curriculum rewrite before they cut and paste from Wikipedia.
If they cared about your input they would have included school boards or teachers in the creation. Millions of dollars and hours had already been spent developing the curriculum before Jason Kenney famously said he was going to put it in the shredder.
Any parent or guardian can email their school council requesting that the following resolution be debated as soon as possible:
WHEREAS the Minister of Education, Adriana LaGrange, released a draft curriculum for Kindergarten to Grade 6 on March 29, 2021;
WHEREAS the new draft curriculum received widespread criticism for being Eurocentric and even racist; for being developmentally inappropriate; for focusing on outmoded approaches to learning such as rote memorization of facts over meaningful engagement with material; for being inaccurate in numerous subject areas with regard to basic facts and principles; and for being developed without adequate input from teachers and education experts;
WHEREAS the Metis Nation of Alberta and the Chiefs of Treaty 6 have called for a rejection of the curriculum, as it “perpetuates rather than addresses systemic racism”; and
WHEREAS we, in our experience as parents and guardians, are intimately familiar with the needs and capabilities of our children.
We, assert that the draft curriculum is critically flawed and does not have our confidence;
We call upon the Minister of Education and the Government of Alberta to reject the draft curriculum outright;
We call upon the [Insert School board name] to not volunteer in any piloting of the draft curriculum;
We call upon [School Board Name] to affirm the right of parents and guardians to refuse to allow their children to participate in any piloting of the draft curriculum; and
We instruct the executive of [School Council Name] to communicate this resolution to the Minister of Education, the [School Board], and post it online to share with other Albertans.
