Attention Alberta Homeschoolers!

I have been informed in the last couple of days about a new bill the PC party is trying to pass regarding the Education Act. They want to change it to say this - section 16 that all instructional materials in schools “must reflect the diverse nature and heritage of society in Alberta, promote understanding and respect for others and honour and respect the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms and the Alberta Human Rights Act.”

This will include private schools and homeschooling. We would have to use government approved curriculum and it could come to the point that we would no longer be able to use our bibles during school time.

This is not a good thing that the government wants to tell us what conversations we can have with our families in our own home or to tell us what we can and can't say to our children. We, as a homeschooling parents, should be able to choose the curriculum of our choice and teach our children as we see fit.

Please read the article at the link below. It has information on how to contact the Minister of Education, the Premier and local MLA's. I have already e-mailed the Minister of Education and the Premier. They have to know that this is not the way of a democratic country.

"Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD." Ps 27:14
