AHEA has organized a peaceful, prayerful rally to take place at the legislature on Monday, March from 12:30 – 1:30 pm. The legislature will resume sitting at 1:30 on Monday, March 5 and congregating as a collective outside the legislature building will demonstrate home educator’s support for changing Bill 2.
When: Monday, March 5, 12:30-1:30
Where: Outside main Legislature doors
Why: The Premier's office has indicated that they are evaluating whether people care about the changes AHEA is proposing on behalf of home educators. This rally will demonstrate that home educators support making changes to s.16 of Bill 2 Education Act.
Premier Redford is tracking how many people contact Minister Lukaszuk or herself regarding Bill 2 and is being updated twice a day. It is important to show support by continuing to respectfully call the Minister of Education (780) 427-5010 and the Premier’s office (780) 427-2251 and by peacefully gathering at the legislature.
AHEA has been working closely with Home School Legal Defence Association to discern the potential implications of Bill 2 Education Act. The current wording of the legislation leaves home educating families very vulnerable. Clarification on Bill 2 may be found at the HSLDA website http://www.hslda.ca/blog?year=2012&month=3
