So I can throw a house party for 500 as long as I refer to my home as a school. Got it.

This was an embarrassment of an announcement. None of these folks have a clue about teaching, curriculum, or the modern classroom. Everything they said and believe about education is biased and only serves their ideological view of teaching and curriculum.

Pardon my cynicism but is it wrong that I expect the person in charge of mapping out the future of K-12 curriculum not be a dude whose VCR is currently flashing 12:00?

Minister LaGrange repeats claims of bias in social studies curriculum but can’t provide specific examples. The current social studies curriculum engaged thousands of stakeholders—students, parents, teachers, more—and was built under a *Conservative* government.

Masks for Grades 4 to 12 are great but they’re NOT a reason to... - avoid reducing class sizes🏫 - avoid fixing ventilation issues💨 - reduce 2m distancing to 1m↔️

Translation: we don’t want your kids thinking critically or going on to traditional university because they are less likely to vote for us.

Adriana Lagrange was unable to provide a single solitary example of the "bias" in the curriculum that she says they have corrected.

. How many Albertans would buy a used car from you? Please remind your Minister that schools don’t “produce” students. That’s a 1930 philosophy. Schools give students the tools and inspiration to become engaged life-long learners.

The UCP is trying to distract from the fact that they haven’t acted to make schools safe for September. Minister has one key job and she is failing. If she can’t keep kids safe she has no business being the Minister or Education!

.⁦⁩ Re-opening schools without substantially lowering classroom sizes does not work. Kids will be kids. will spread like a wildfire. Learn from others’ mistakes. You found cash for O&G, now find it for kids.

“If students are seated at their desks working quietly, not moving around, they don’t need to wear masks.” how many 21st century classrooms have you visited? Children learning and discovering don’t sit/work “quietly” nor should they.

LaGrange: If I keep talking about the curriculum update, angry parents will forget I had no real plan to protect their children. But if the kids live, boy, are they going sell some used cars.

LIVE: Alberta will provide re-usable masks, face shields & sanitizer for the back-to-school this fall. Masks will be required for Gr.4-12 students in common areas & for teachers & school staff where physical distancing can't take place.

Today’s announcement again does not adequately address the issue of distancing in Alberta’s overcrowded classrooms. There is still time to get this right and to create confidence in the re-entry plan. See release

"I don't think they understand middle school." Very important to consider real life when talking about reopening schools. 👇👇🏽👇🏿

LIVE: With a new Ministerial Order on Student Learning, we are keeping our promises to Albertans to consult more openly with parents and educators on the curriculum, and put an end to "discovery" learning in the classroom.

If Minister of Education Adriana LaGrange won't do what's necessary to keep students and teachers safe, she should not be the Minister. Period.

I taught social studies. I worked in curriculum for years. Teachers do an incredible job making curriculum come alive. The current social studies curriculum ensures multiple perspectives on issues and engages critical thinking: is that what the minister calls bias?
