Minister Eggen became aware of some board redistributed and has responded:
"Dear Ms. Marler:
I would like to extend my congratulations to you on becoming president of the Alberta Home Education Association (AHEA).
As you know, our government believes all students should have a great education and a bright future. Even in challenging economic times, we are continuing to provide stable funding for education – whether it takes place in a public, separate or Francophone school, a charter school, a private school or at home.
Alberta Education is committed to working with our education partners, including parents, in the best interest of students. My department values the input and insight provided by the AHEA on behalf of home educating families. Your commitment to your membership is laudable, and I appreciate your willingness to collaborate on issues pertaining to the home education community.
I look forward to a continued productive relationship with the AHEA under your leadership.
