Teachers – More Debt Spending – Alberta Politics

Radical politics must be pushed out of education system for good

Parents want children to be educated, not indoctrinated

When it comes to education in Ontario, the inmates are truly running the asylum. While the Doug Ford government has spent the last several years pushing an approach that goes back to the basics and focuses on student achievement, the people running the system have other ideas.

Now boards are even pushing back against orders from the Ministry of Education to cease and desist from using divisive, radical, race-based, political documents.

Public Education and the Global Failure of Socialism

Public Education: Socialism’s Last Refuge

And the ironic cause of that demise could very well be our own reluctance either to privatize or radically restructure the most socialist enterprise in the Western world, that $180 billion near-monopoly known as U.S. public education.

Some years ago I asked Nobel economist Milton Friedman why it was, given the appalling and obvious failures of socialism everywhere in the world contrasted with the stunning successes of market capitalism, that most American students still graduated from high school with such a surprisingly socialist perspective. His answer was characteristically clear: “Because they are products of a socialist system—namely public education. How can you expect such a system to inculcate the values of free enterprise and individual entrepreneurship and competition when it is based on monopoly state ownership, abhors competition, and survives only through compulsion and taxation?”

Alberta cabinet to gain power to remove councillors, change bylaws as province also adds political parties to municipal politics

The new bill introduces a series of changes to a pair of government acts that will give cabinet new powers to intervene in municipal affairs and permit partisan affiliations to be listed on municipal election ballots

A new Alberta government bill seeks to give cabinet new powers to compel councils to amend or repeal municipal bylaws and remove councillors, while also allowing party affiliations to be listed on municipal election ballots.

The changes are among many that will be introduced through Bill 20: the Municipal Affairs Statutes Amendment Act, 2024 which was tabled in the legislature on Thursday. It proposes significant amendments to both the Local Authorities Election Act (LAEA) and the Municipal Government Act.
