So the government has switched universities and colleges to a "performance-based funding model," which seems like a really great way to ensure the worse performing school continue to perform poorly (and maybe even get worse over time), due to a lack of resources.
I also fear they're going to institute this at the primary/secondary school level, along with making it easier to open charter schools. In essence, I think they're going to try to replicate a failed US model.
@ink_slinger Related to funding primary/secondary-- Alberta has also pushed school boards to remove "public" from their names.
@ink_slinger You best believe they will try to privatize / Americanize the primary schools. This is a big middle finger to indigenous people, natch.
It can be so hard to love Alberta...
