Rally Against Public Education Budget Cuts

The provincial government is pushing school districts to make further cuts to their budgets in the next three years, delaying completion of the seismic upgrading of Vancouver schools and auditing the Vancouver School Board despite the Legislative Budget Committee's recommendation to increase funding to an adequate level. 

To advocate for adequate funding for public education, Vancouver DPAC and other parent groups are organizing a Parent-led Rally Against Public Education Budget Cuts:

Sunday, April 12 at 12 noon  Vancouver Art Gallery

We are calling it F.A.C.E. - Families Against Cuts to Education: This will be a non-partisan family-friendly event to give parents/guardians an opportunity to speak up and advocate for their children. 

There are already the beginnings of some plans for FACE events in other communities outside Vancouver. We are hoping this will be a BC-wide day of action in support of adequate funding for public education. 

Please mark the date on your calendars and join us! Spread the word to your parent networks and other citizens concerned about public education in BC.
