AHEA Convention 2015: Heart of the Home

Merry Christmas from AHEA

To all AHEA members, to all home educators, to all Alberta parents:

As you probably already know, the Alberta Home Education Association has been active during the last few weeks reminding our politicians - and others - of the importance of parental authority in education.

Parental authority is of key importance because children's interests are best served in the context of a family.

Quite simply, parents are the primary guides of their children.

So as we guide our children through their lives, we come once again to Christmas, a time to step back from the busy-ness and remember what is truly important: our families and our faith.

At this time of year, with 2014 coming to a close, we look to a new beginning - a birth, the birth of a baby at Christmas - and we feel again the hope and joy and the knowledge that we are on the right path.

Merry Christmas to you and your family from the AHEA family - the board, the convention team, and all our volunteers.

Premier Prentice: Proposing a new bill related to education

November 27, 2014

UPDATE: ADDITIONAL LINKS TO NEWS ARTICLE ADDED AT BOTTOM: 7:27PM Nov 27 and 7: 38am Nov 28

Premier Prentice has announced in a press conference at 1 pm Thursday November 27 that he will be proposing new legislation which he states will assure the rights and freedoms of all people. This new legislation will be posted once it is available.

Quote from today's Press conference:

Sadly, however intended, the current Alberta Liberal bill to legislate gay-straight alliances has forced elected MLAs into a position of pitting all of those beliefs — which their constituents share — against one another.

“Bill 202 asks us to cast aside our constituents’ beliefs in parental rights (and) in the autonomy of school boards to support GSAs. It’s unfair to us and to those whom we represent.

“This is too important an issue to be reduced to a political game. When faced with such an unfair and unbalanced approach, I believe it is the job of a premier and the job of a government to show leadership and to build consensus, because rights need to be advanced, because children need to be protected, because parents need to be reassured and because school boards need to be respected.”

Premier Jim Prentice, November 27, 2014
