Anderson happy to see K-4 Curriculum addressed by the province
It's been over 2 years in the making and finally has gotten official approval.
Alberta Education and the Alberta Teachers Association approved the new curriculum for k-4 students, a new program that includes a focus on mental health and multiculturalism and the French perspective.
Alberta's Municipal Affairs Minister Shaye Anderson tells The One News, how this will benefit immersion programs across the province, especially in his riding of Beaumont.
"So the new curriculum will provide teachers in francophone and anglophone schools across Alberta the opportunity to share the important contributions from our provinces diversified francophone communities and provides our francophone community in particular in Beaumont the opportunity to communicate loudly and proudly the cultural identity and the importance of the francophone language in Alberta," says Anderson.
The grade 5-9 program changes are slated to be completed in December 2019 while grades 10-12 are currently scheduled to be finished in between December 2020 to 2022. (JSL/THE ONE NEWS)
