Dear SOS Champion:

It was another busy school year defending public education in Alberta.

You fought hard against the draft K-6 curriculum. 

You fought for safe school protocols.

You engaged your neighbours and friends about charter schools and spoke out about the agenda to privatize education.

We hope you can find time to rest and refresh before the next school year is upon us. 

Rest is resistance.

We will need you to continue to fight the good fight with us.

Hot off the Press!

“Populism, polarization and privatization in Alberta education”

An important article by SOS Research Director, Heather Ganshorn, was recently featured in the latest issue of Our Schools/Our Selves, an education journal published by the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives.

In this piece, Heather succinctly and clearly lays out the connections between right-wing populist politics, polarization, and privatization on Alberta education. 
It outlines the sociopolitical forces at play that are accelerating their pressures to deconstruct public education, particularly in Alberta and how our situation mirrors what is happening elsewhere, namely such as in the USA.
