Vision for Public Education

Stand For Education campaign moves to second phase

"Round table discussions” is the next phase of the Stand For Education campaign that saw more than 4,000 people rally at the Alberta legislature on October 22.

Part of the Stand for Education campaign is a public engagement process that has been designed to develop a bold  and hopeful vision for the future of public education in Alberta.

This is to be achieved through a series of public roundtable discussions between November 2022 and February 2023.

The purpose of the roundtable discussions is to advance and promote a hopeful vision for the public education system into Alberta’s future. This conversation will also be used as an opportunity to unearth the diversity of students’  academic, social and emotional challenges and needs in our public schools, and pathways of support moving forward.

Presenting a hopeful vision for public education generated by the public roundtable discussions in advance of the 2023 provincial election. A report summarizing and reflecting all hopeful visions received will be available to the public in late February or early March.
