This is the first episode of a new series that will be added to as guests come up or the topic is especially relevant. Today my guest is Luke Fevin who started APUPIL (Albertan Parents for Unbiased, Inclusive Learning) about 7 years ago. Luke and I discuss what started APUPIL, whether Alberta’s exceptionally generous funding model deters religious groups from advocating for religious privilege to match that of Catholic schools and how the laws, and parent advocacy, have affected public education as we know it today.
There are a few groups that I know of who advocate for change or improvements to the way we offer education in Alberta and I will have upcoming episodes featuring Together for Students as well as Support Our Students. Feel free to recommend others who are working to open conversations in education 🙂
