Our students need a science-based education curriculum that prepares them for the future—not the 1950’s. Jason Kenney’s new curriculum is broken, backward, and downright damaging to the young, bright minds of our province.

Parts of the Social Studies curriculum are even taken directly from Wikipedia. Alberta’s students deserve better. We paid for better.
