Retreat in Alberta?



March 7, 2017
There was a new development in the Alberta Education sector last week. Education Minister David Eggen appears to be backing away from plans to insist that all schools – including independent and Christian schools – will have to live by Bill 10 and the province’s policies on transgenderism in the classroom. He told the National Post  that an inquiry into two Edmonton area schools which are refusing to follow the policy has unearthed unexpected legal implications and the situation is “more complicated” than they had originally foreseen.

ARPA Education consultant Harry Moes says the Minister has had that report in his hands for more than two months, and it appears Eggen is “stepping back” and recognizing that “the rule of law does need to respect the religious rights of parents.”

There’s no indication on when the report might be released.
