fairness in adult basic education
Join us in MAKING SURE BRITISH COLUMBIA'S POST-SECONDARY SYSTEM PROVIDES FAIR AND EQUITABLE ACCESS TO BASIC EDUCATION FOR ADULTS.
From the North Shore to the Downtown Eastside, Squamish to the Sunshine Coast, Christy Clark's cancellation of tuition-free basic education for adults is costing our communities dearly.
BASIC EDUCATION IS A FUNDAMENTAL HUMAN RIGHT
Failure to complete high school limits job and career options and is often associated with poor life outcomes such as higher criminality, poorer health and a greater dependence on social services. It holds individuals back from realizing their potential. It holds back our collective, economic and social progress. The public interest in eliminating barriers to participation in post-secondary education requires that no tuition be charged to any adult learner seeking to upgrade their education by completing high school courses. — GEOFF PLANT, Campus 2020
