It is my hope that, having a better understanding of the current state of education in Alberta, you will come to the same conclusion as I have: that the monopoly that is the government education system, the sole source of funding, curriculum and regulation, needs to be overhauled. There are several ideas which we may want to look into:

  1. Implement a voucher system - The funding follows the student.

  2. Permit a $0-funding model for private and home educators.

  3. Strip the curriculum requirements for a school to only the basics.

  4. Separate government ideology from the education system.

Already active in the home school community, I continue to strive to find the best options for fixing our education system and ways which we may remove ideology (which may be antithetical to the parents’) from the school system. Give us an option separate from the existing government system, and not only will we save all taxpayers money, we may just be able to return to the position we held not long ago: producing one of the best educated group of students in the world.
