Parents for Choice in Education is pleased to offer an excellent column published in the Edmonton Journal June 5th, 2016, written by Theresa Ng.
Theresa Ng is author of Informed Albertans, and accepted the position of Master of Ceremony at the May 14, 2016 Edmonton Legislature PCE sponsored Rally to Protect Alberta Children, by upholding parental rights.
Informed Albertans has partnered with PCE in our efforts to pressure our elected representatives in the Alberta Legislature to amend the School Act and the Education Act to include a protocol that requires the notification of parents when children are counselled in schools.
We also look to have egregious school board policies-that damage the parent/child bond- offered to Minister Eggen (based on the Education Guidelines) retracted.
We are very honoured to have this incredible author stand with us! This is an excellent column that should be shared far and wide!

The 20,000+ signatures on the Bill 10 petition, the 4300+ attendees at the loving and peaceful rallies in Calgary and Edmonton, and the many phone calls and emails citizens across Alberta continue to inundate elected officials at all levels from school councils to MLAs with have had a huge impact.
Alberta citizens concerned about parent choice in education are no longer being ignored. For more on the many opportunities we've had to spread awareness go Events and Interviews on Guidelines and Bill 10.
