Red Deer Public School District In Support Of Single, Publicly Funded Education System

By Sheldon Spackman

Red Deer’s Public School Division is calling for the end of multiple education systems in Alberta. The Public School Board has approved a motion to “advocate for a single publicly funded education system”.  The Red Deer Public School District and Red Deer Catholic Regional Schools have existed side by side since the province was founded.

During it’s regular meeting on May 10th, 2017, the Red Deer Public School Board voted to “advocate for a single publicly funded education system”.  The original motion which was brought forward by Trustee Dianne Macaulay, was later amended by fellow Trustee Bill Stuebing and eventually approved by a vote of 4 to 3.

Macaulay’s notice of motion called for the Public Board to offer Catholic programs, as well as other faith and program options but that was removed by Trustee Stuebing’s amendment.

Public School officials say the Board of Trustees have generally been supporters of one publicly funded education system that opens its doors to all students. Dissenting Trustees were questioning whether it was the role of the Board to advocate on this issue. Those supporting the motion feel public school boards should be forefront in championing a single publicly funded education system.
