Step 4: Get Loud

Hi, I am a constituent calling from (postal code) in (Edmonton Community name). My name is: _______.

 

I am [angry, disappointed, surprised] that the provincial government has jeopardized the future of every Edmonton public school student by chronically underfunding education in the province. While the Edmonton Public School Board has done a lot of work to ensure that students continue to have access to education, by 2026 all of the schools in the Edmonton Public division will be full, and without new available space we will not be able to accommodate any additional growth. For many years, the enrolment in Edmonton Public has increased by over 4000 students; in 2023/24 alone we have had close to 3000 additional students enroll since September 2023.

 

In the provincial budget released at the end of February, the provincial government committed to build only one new school in Edmonton Public School division. It could open as early as September 2028. We need the government to prioritize Public Education in the province, and Edmonton needs 50 new schools to be built by 2030 to seat all of the current and projected students. 

 

We need funding for Public Education, and we have needed it for years.

 

Thank you.
