On February 9, 2015, we released the results of a province-wide survey of parents, teachers, education workers, and students, called “Alarm Bells Ringing: Voices from Schools”.
“The survey reveals that increasingly unacceptable classroom conditions and lack of support staff are resulting in too many Alberta children falling through the cracks. As a result, alarm bells are ringing loudly in schools around the province, but we question if the Education Minister and Premier are hearing these concerned voices from schools.”
