  1. You are doing great work. I am concerned that the Alberta government public consultation for education is for show only. It is full of glowing generalities. And yet that is our chance to have our say and get them into concrete territory. I have made them a lengthy submission. They are so much on the wrong track when the focus on more more computers instead of personal time between teachers and students. The real world does have standards, often very very high ones to get into post secondary, to get a job and keep a job, to win awards and invent and create. It is sad to see a focus on lowering standards, not checking for marks, eliminating exams. Content mastery does matter. I am sad to see so little focus on ensuring small classes. If we let more and more kids into the system via kindergarten for 4, then 3, then 2 year olds, we will risk watering down the education we can afford for all levels. Class sizes of 40-50 will hit the high schools. The private schools’ main pull lately is lower class sizes maybe 15 to a class. If we can’t offer kids that we are not offering top quality education, whatever gloss the spin over the theory.
