Education Minister to speak on the draft K-6 curriculum:
Adriana LaGrange, Alberta’s education minister, will have a news meeting at 1 p.m. Monday to draft the following measures for the draft K-6 curriculum.
LaGrange revealed an offered new K-6 curriculum in March, stating that voters had informed the government they wanted to issue with educational fads and return to conventional methods of education, including a focus on cultivating knowledge, numeracy and literacy, and practical skills.
The curriculum rewrite had begun under the prior New Democratic Party government. When the United Conservative Party created the government in 2019, it got in hand-picked consultants to update some of the current material.
But when it was created public, the offered curriculum was widely panned by parents and educators, who balanced charges of plagiarism, inaccuracies, and weaknesses in how it protects race, colonialism and Indigenous individuals.
The curriculum is considered to evolve compulsory next fall. The Alberta Teachers’ Association and Edmonton public school board have made for the performance to be postponed.
In November, an Alberta Education official stated more irregular than one per cent of the region’s teachers were pilot-testing the latest draft curriculum. The exact official stated nearly 7,800 students were involved in the pilot — around two per cent of all K-6 students in the region.
