The Association campaigns throughout the school year in support of teachers and education.
A problematic new curriculum, funding cuts, growing class sizes and attacks on teachers—the Alberta government is making dangerous changes to public education. Children’s wellbeing and their futures are at risk.
Alberta has a world-renowned public education system. Our teachers and other school staff work hard and provide outstanding educational opportunities. Unfortunately, students and teachers are not provided with the best supports and, as a result, too many children are falling through the cracks.
The Alberta Teachers’ Association, the Canadian Mental Health Association and Global television are partnering to promote the mental health of children and youth.
The purpose of Education Week is to call attention to the importance of education and to show the public the good things happening in Alberta schools.
World Teachers’ Day is celebrated every October 5th. The Alberta Teachers’ Association, in collaboration with the Canadian Teachers’ Federation, promote the day through the use of a theme that varies from year to year. Check out this year’s theme!
