Parents for Choice in Education (PCE) is here to help equip parents so they can make informed choices to best meet the specific needs of their children.
This is especially important when it comes to the area of sexuality and gender content in Alberta’s K-12 schools.
We’ve separated this complex topic into six sections of key questions, all of which are answered in the content following below.
A. What sexuality and gender content in Alberta schools is leading to increased levels of student distress and parental concerns?
B. What are the legal rights of parents to be notified and opt-out of human sexuality topics? What are the significant gaps and limitations of these legal rights?
C. What can parents and concerned citizens do to advocate for system changes?
D. What approach to sexual education is increasingly being used in Alberta classrooms? If this approach does not meet your child’s needs, where can you access information on alternatives?
E. What are strategies to help parents communicate with their child in order to better understand the material being presented to their child during school hours?
- F. What are strategies to help parents build proactive and ongoing communication with teachers and administrators in their child’s school?
Note that PCE advocates on behalf of all parents having the right to be the primary educator and caregiver of their children. Each parent needs to discern for themselves the needs of their own children and then have the freedom to access an education setting that best meets those needs, especially when it comes to the sensitive area of sexuality and gender topics.
