Let's Talk About Alberta Education and Corporate Influence

Are you a teacher, parent, student, or a community member who is concerned about the corporate influence over Alberta Educations curriculum redesign? If you are, myself and a number of other teachers/community members are looking to organize meetings (on-line or in person) to provide a space for Albertans to discuss the issue of corporate influence within the curriculum redesign.

If you're not familiar with this issue, here are a few articles to get you up to speed:

If you would like to be a part of these discussions please take a few moments to fill out the form below to sign up for a meeting (in person or on-line). Thank you for taking the time to read and consider this important issue. I look forward to (hopefully) hearing back from a lot of great people across the province!

* If you are reading this and do not live in Alberta, but have experience dealing/organizing around this type of issue, I would love to here from you as well. I'm interested to see what other provinces/states/countries have done when dealing with this issue and would love to learn more about keeping education accountable to the public only. You can e-mail me here if you'd like to offer any support/guidance!
