The B.C. Teachers’ Federation (BCTF) is demanding answers as to how the province’s new education curriculum will be implemented.
The BCTF released a document this week that says the provincial government must deliver a curriculum for all students within a year of the 2017-2018 school year.
But the B.V. Ministry of Education says it is taking no action on the BCTF’s demand.
“As with all BCTFs demands, the province will respond to their request,” said spokesperson Julie MacLeod.
The BCTFP also called on Premier Christy Clark to release the final curriculum.
“It’s disappointing that Premier Clark would not provide this information, especially as she is the one who created the BCTF,” said BCTFF president Michael Mejia.
“What do they know about the curriculum and how do they intend to make it work?”
Clark said she will not comment on the BCTCF’s request until she receives the final version of the new curriculum, but that the government is committed to making sure all students learn and thrive in B.D. Howe and the surrounding communities.
“We have no plans to change the BCF’s curriculum,” said Clark.
“I will be releasing the curriculum this spring.”BCTF president Michael Mylan said he is pleased with the new content, but he wants more information about the government’s plan to reform the curriculum.
“The BCTCFF’s demand for the release of the BC curriculum is timely, as we continue to struggle with funding and staffing issues, and are looking forward to the new year,” said Mylan.
“We hope that the Ministry of Finance will provide the BCTF with more information as to the progress the province is making toward implementing the BCTP.”
