Wildrose Leader Talks Education During Stop in Lethbridge

 
 

LETHBRIDGE: Wildrose Official Opposition leader Danielle Smith made a pass through Southern Alberta Thursday, before stopping in Lethbridge for a constituency dinner and fundraiser.


While in the region she took some time to visit Piikani schools, explaining that the board of trustees highlighted a couple of major issues where they would like more provincial support, "There is some issues with curriculum development and making sure that there's an aboriginal history component in our social studies courses, not only for education on reserve but also off reserve. As well as there are a number of different programs and supports that are provided to off reserve students, that they would like the opportunity to participate in as well."


Speaking with Country 95 News, Smith also touched on the ongoing tension between Alberta teachers and the province, "The issue that we're seeing, I think in education more generally, is that the government made a lot of promises that they couldn't keep. They raised expectations, they promised the teachers and the school boards that there would be a lot more money coming and a lot more school construction, and of course now that reality has come crashing down after the election, a lot of those promises are being broken."
