It is anticipated that local high school student Kate Pundyk will soon be joined by tens of thousands of her fellow students throughout Alberta in protesting their exclusion from having a say in their own education.
Alberta students launch #EdStake initiative to demand a voice in their education
In this regard, she and some of her fellow students have collectively launched the online #EdStake campaign at www.edstake.com and on Twitter, Facebook, and Tumblr. They are calling on all students in Alberta to unite and initiate student-led discussions to create a Student’s Declaration on Education.
“Students are the building blocks of Alberta's future and yet we are the last to be consulted on education policies,” said Kate Pundyk, a high school student from Crowsnest Consolidated High School in the Crowsnest Pass, in a news release...
"What we are saying is clear: We have a voice, and we deserve a stake in our education system."

We want students across the province to stand up for their voice to be heard. Join us on March 21st.
Hopefully, we'll see the teachers get behind this initiative (one would think, as teachers, they would have advocated on behalf of their students for this initiative on their own, some time ago). Come on teachers, get behind your students... don't be Another Brick In The Wall.
If you believe education is expensive, you should see how expensive stupidity really is.
