It's time for a change at the CBE. With busing a continued fiasco, children failing math and unclear report cards, it's time for a fresh new approach at the Calgary Board of Education.
To ensure our children succeed in today's world, they need an outstanding education.
We achieve this by putting students back at the centre of CBE decision-making. This strategic focus would mean every decision and every dollar supports student success in the classroom. School programming must focus on students' needs today and into the future.
Each child in our education system matters ... leadership matters ... because Students Count!
Math is broken. More kids are failing math and CBE is not fixing the problem. We will fix it.
Fund Classrooms, not Admin:
We will move millions back into the classroom. CBE staffing MUST be focused on support in the classroom.
Fix Report Cards:
Report cards allow parents to support their child's learning. For many parents this is the best way to see their child's progress and meaningful report cards must be reinstated.
Ensure Student Wellness:
Ensuring students feel safe at school is a priority to us all. We propose establishing an independent ombudsman to handle any unresolved student or parent concerns about bullying.
Keep Big Money out of Elections:
Special interests have no role in education. We will not accept corporate or union donations.
