Our concerns regarding parental rights in the education of our children have proven valid. MLA’s in the legislature made this very evident with their discussion and comments last night in the legislature (March 14, 2012). Ms. Laurie Blakeman made several comments regarding parents' rights in education. The Alberta Hansard has not yet been printed from the evening debate so I cannot quote directly, though I caught most of the words as they were stated. (exact wording will be quoted once the Hansard on the evening session is posted) I noted these as I was surprised how openly our very concerns were stated in the legislature.
Ms. Blakeman: (regarding education) Who gets to make the final decision? Outside of Education the parent has the right. When it comes to public education, we legislators make the policy that gives forth those decisions. The citizenry makes the decision so we have a consistent standard.
Previously in the day the following comments were made as quoted from the Alberta Hansard.
