Convention Updates

Our New Minister of Education

Adriana LaGrange - AB Minister of Education

Jason Kenney's choice for Education Minister was greatly anticipated since the news that the people of Alberta elected a UCP majority government. Tuesday's revelation that this post was going to be filled by Adriana LaGrange, a MLA from Red Deer, was greeted with enthusiastic support by the members of the home education community. As a mother of seven children, which include a set of identical twins, and grandmother of three, Minister LaGrange has a strong connection to family that our home education community can relate to. She is also a role model to young ladies as the second female Education Minister of Alberta. The passion and strength she has already demonstrated in her work as a Trustee of the Red Deer Catholic Regional School Division and as the President of the Alberta Catholic School Trustees Association, confirm she is someone who is a seasoned defender of choice and parental rights. These shared foundations give us a common base to work and collaborate from.  

AHEA looks forward to working with Minister LaGrange in her new role and congratulates her on her appointment!

Christmas Blessings

As we quickly approach the celebration of the birth of our Lord and Savior, Christ Jesus, may we take time to reflect on the blessings in our lives. May the blessings of family and home education fill you with great joy.
This Christmas, may you celebrate the greatest gift ever given to mankind. The baby, Christ Jesus, born of a virgin mother in Bethlehem, and laid in a humble manger. The baby who would fulfilled the prophesies and promises of our Creator. The baby, Christ Jesus, who came to offer hope to all.
On behalf of the Alberta Home Education Association, I wish you a blessed Christmas season and New Year. May Christ Jesus fill you, your home, and your family with great hope, joy, peace, and love.

Patty Marler
AHEA President

 

Review Committee

AHEA Review Committee

As part of a regular review, the AHEA board has formed a Review Committee to gather information and input from AHEA members on the “nature of AHEA” – AHEA’s values, philosophy, objects, bylaws, articles, and major policy documents – in order to confirm or change the direction the organization should take in the future and bring forward at the next AGM any necessary or proposed changes.

This committee will include long-time AHEA members Don Reid, Tom Lipp and Ray Strom so that AHEA’s history can be considered as part of the committee’s body of information. Input should be submitted in writing by AHEA members directly to the Review Committee.

The committee:

  • will include at least three but no more than five members,
  • will not include current board members nor any person employed by a school board or authority or in a position of authority with the same, and
  • will gather information for a period of approximately six months from the 2017 AGM.

Recommendations by the committee will be presented to the board by no later than November 1st 2017 so that committee recommendations in Notices of Motion can be published in order to give public written notice to current members of any changes being proposed at the April 2018 AGM.
