One Province, One public School System

It's time for ​a single,

secular public school system in Alberta.

 

A unifying, secular school system will bring our province together, reduce wasteful duplication of services and put education tax dollars in classrooms where it matters for students.

And now with the economic challenges facing our province, there’s no better time to unite in a single, secular school system.

Separate faith schools can have a negative impact on social cohesion, foster segregation of children on social, ethnic, and religious lines, and undermine choice and equality. They also enable religious groups to use public money to evangelize to children.

 

This campaign is a platform for everyone who wants to see an inclusive education system, free from religious control.

If you think children from all faith and belief backgrounds should be educated together and allowed to develop their own beliefs independently, join us in saying: 

 

Joining Dozens of Voices and Decades of Work

The AHA is excited to join dozens of activist voices from all around Alberta who have over many years passionately campaigned hard to educate the public and work towards the merging of the separate school systems. This makes the work of this campaign so much easier. Networking and partnering are the heartbeat of this campaign and will be the recipe for success.
