Simply put, the new curriculum is fatally flawed.
A recent survey of teachers
found that 91 per cent of teachers are unhappy with the draft curriculum, 90 per cent of teachers are uncomfortable teaching it and 95 per cent of principals are uncomfortable supporting it in their schools and communities.
To protect our children and the future children of Alberta, we cannot allow these drafts to be implemented.
One respondent to the survey said it best: "This curriculum is developmentally inappropriate and will cause kids to get frustrated with learning and to develop a bad attitude about school."
The Alberta Teachers’ Association is calling on the government
to stop work on curriculum piloting and implementation until an independent, full and open review and rewrite can occur.
