Alberta: Defund Private Schools and Invest in Public Education
Alberta has the most expensive publicly funded private school system in Canada. Sign PetitionSign Petition
In Alberta private schools (not including special education schools) rake in more than $100 million a year in public taxpayer subsidies. It's time to stop this shameful waste of taxpayer money and it's time to invest in a stronger public education system with reduced class sizes, reduced school fees and school lunches.
A strong public education system is a cornerstone of our democratic system. We only have to look south of the border to see what happens when religious, cultural and economic divisions are allowed to separate us.
Elite private schools are expensive, unfair and downright wasteful.
Take action now before spending is locked into another budget. Please sign the petition to send the message to the education minister: "Stop Wasteful Spending on Private Schools."
