Welcome to the “PARENTAL CONSENT IS KEY” Open Letter Campaign!
The time has come for Alberta citizens to publicly demand that parents and legal guardians be returned to their primary position as first point of contact for their children in school relating to any issues around bullying, protection, care and education.
When you add your name to this open letter to demonstrate your support, an email will automatically be sent directly on your behalf to Education Minister David Eggen, Incumbent Wildrose Education Critic Leela Aheer, as well as the leaders of each political party.
Moving forward, the specific requirements stated in the open letter will also be used in candidacy surveys for anyone seeking election to public office – including school board trustee elections next fall and those seeking leadership of the PC party in the spring.
This strategy will help inform the votes of Albertans to ensure individuals elected to public office in the future will make it a priority to respect and uphold the authority of parents as the primary caregivers and educators of their children in all provincial legislation and school board policies.
SIGN UP to join our campaign and help us spread the word in order to increase public pressure on our elected representatives and insist parental consent is key.
