Postcards for Public Education
A group of concerned Vancouver parents has started a campaign to support recommendations made to the government regarding funding K-12 education. In short, the report from the government’s own standing committee on finance, calls for funding capital projects, funding ongoing quality education and a review of the existing funding model. The goal of the campaign is to deliver thousands of postcards to the Minister of Education early in the new year.
Parents can send a message by signing postcards in support of these recommendations. Postcards will be located on the table outside the office, and can be signed and placed in a box labelled “PAC Postcards”. If postcards have run out, parents may also print out a copy of the postcard here
and place it in the box.
Parents who wish to read the report created by the standing committee and its recommendations can view it in full here
. The parent presentation to the standing committee, outlining the importance of adequate funding for K-12 education, can be viewed here.
Happy Holidays Everyone! See you in the New Year!
