K-6 curriculum pilot doesn’t align with Lethbridge School Division ‘values’

Lethbridge School Division is very vocal about their distaste for the provincial government’s K-6 curriculum pilot draft.

The board says the government failed to reflect diversity, is not age appropriate, and even includes items that have been plagiarized.  Board chair Christine Light is urging the UCP government to scrap the entire draft, and create a new one. 

“We are calling on the province to stop this process, take the curriculum back, and start again,”says Light “there are too many flaws within this curriculum to validate in a pilot process and make minor tweaks — it’s beyond (that) it needs a complete overhaul”.

Eleven school boards across the province have announced they will not pilot the new curriculum.
