Alberta Party announces Doubling number of Educational Assistants
March 21, 2019 - Edmonton, AB - Alberta Party Leader Stephen Mandel announced this morning that an Alberta Party government will double the number of educational assistants in Alberta’s K- 12 classrooms with a major boost in funding for inclusive education. This means more support in the classroom so every child can have an enhanced learning experience.
“Our classrooms are increasingly diverse with children from many different cultures, backgrounds and circumstances. Alberta families want to be confident their children will receive a quality education no matter how complex the classroom. While continuing efforts to reduce class sizes, we will expand funding to double the number of educational assistants to provide more support to students, more help for teachers, and ultimately make it easier for kids to learn.”
