Education Minister Meets with Staff and Students in Lethbridge

 
 

LETHBRIDGE: Provincial Education Minister Thomas Lukaszuk stopped in Lethbridge Monday.

He met with local school board officials to determine what the major issues are in our region, while also speaking to students about the changes they'd like to see.

Lukaszuk explained that one of the top priorities for school staff is to get stable funding going forward. He stated that the government is working insulating education funding from economic swings caused by the oil and gas revenue generated in Alberta.

As for the students, Lukaszuk says one of the most common things he's hearing is that they want more technology in the classroom. He added that they're also looking to extend educational opportunities beyond the school doors, by suggesting they should get extra credits for volunteering in the community.

Another suggestion brought forward that got Lukaszuk's attention is one that could help prompt more students to move on to post-secondary education after high school. He says a number of students are interested in taking courses for credits that would carry over to post-secondary institutions, giving them a foot in the door and extra initiative to work hard to get in.

Lukaszuk commented that the information gathered from both staff and students will be used going forward to help shape the future of education in Alberta.
