Introduction

Parents for Choice in Education is an Alberta-based, non-profit advocacy organization that believes in excellence in education, and maximum parental choice.

The PCE offices will be closed for the month of July. If you want to engage in Citizen Action this month (or any time) then please go to Citizen Action in 10 Steps for all the information you need to do so. Let’s keep the pressure on!

Peaceful Rally to Protect Alberta Children.

 

PCE strongly supports a high-quality public education system in Alberta.  We also believe that parents should have the ability to pursue an alternative method of education for their children if their local public school does not meet their needs or desires.  These alternatives can include publicly funded alternative programs, Catholic schools, private schools, virtual schools, charter schools or home schooling.  Sometimes parents just want the freedom to enrol their child at a public school outside of their local neighbourhood.  We believe that parents are the experts in their own children, and that they should be free to choose the method of schooling that best meets the needs of their families.

Children don’t come one-size-fits-all.  Education shouldn’t either.
