Deputy Premier Grilled on Home Schooling

Deputy Premier Thomas Lukaszuk recently met with community leaders in Taber, who expressed concern about how a new education act could negatively affect home schoolers. Lukaszuk claims that the current legislation has 'loopholes' which allow people to "use the home schooling regulation almost to exempt their children out of education." He did not present any evidence to demonstrate that this was happening, but suggested that it might be the government's justification for making changes to the home schooling regulations as part of a new proposed education act.
The government caucus will be discussing these issues and other changes to the education act on September 5th.

Please contact members of the government to make your opinion heard about these issues.
