Focusing on BC's Public Education

According to Alex Hemingway's latest analysis, public funding for elementary and high school education in BC fell by 25% as a share of the province's economic pie between 2001 and 2016. BC has the second-lowest level of public education funding in Canada – nearly $1,000 per student below the national average.
