Citizens from all over BC used our last “Can you hear us now” email tool to tell the minister of education and their MLAs that they wanted an end to underfunding, starting with the removal of the $25 million administrative cuts in Budget 2016. It’s clear that the government realizes British Columbians are unhappy with the education funding situation: in recent weeks, there have been announcements in which the $25 million was returned to districts, some capital projects have been announced, and special funding has been given to rural schools.

The response to these announcements has been “too little, too late.” Much more funding is needed to meet the costs of public education, and a long-term approach that provides stable, predictable, adequate funding is necessary, rather than the current erratic and unpredictable funding by photo-op, which leads only to more confusion and instability.
