Media Updates on BC Education Funding

Members of PAN (Parent Advocacy Network for Public Education) and FACE (Families Against Cuts to Education) hosted an event on Tuesday, January 26 to deliver more than 1,500 postcards and online petition signatures to ​Premier Christy Clark’s Vancouver Office to demand better funding for schools.

PAN's Letter to BC Education Minister, Mike Bernier, sent on Jan 20 was picked up and quoted heavily in the Vancouver Sun on Jan 21.

Dickens PAC Chair, Andrew Sinclair, was interviewed by Simi Sara on Friday, Jan 22.

The PAN and FACE event on Tuesday (Jan 26) and corresponding media coverage appears to have helped, as Mr. Bernier stated the next day (Jan 27) that the "95% was flexible".

Here is some of the media coverage on January, 26:
