#BuildSchoolsRight


Parent Advocacy Network is currently running a #BuildSchoolsRight campaign. Many communities in BC desperately need new schools—to replace old schools that are seismically unsafe and contain health hazards like asbestos and lead, and to replace portables in communities that are rapidly outgrowing their existing schools. However, communities overjoyed to finally receive funding for a new school are dismayed to find out that the new schools are on average 30% smaller, and they lack important learning spaces.

Space limitations means schools miss out many aspects that benefit children, including quiet places, art rooms, sufficient gymnasium space, and other necessities for successful inclusive learning.

Send a pre-drafted letter to your MLA to support the #BuildSchoolsRight campaign.
