Alberta’s education minister unveiled a report yesterday that calls for a new 20-year plan to make the province’s school system more modern.

The report, created by a 22-member steering committee, calls for a move to change the school system that will focus more on creativity and use of technology.

“Participants concluded that the education system needs more than minor change,” read the report, titled Inspiring Education, A Dialogue With Albertans. “Indeed, they advocated for an informed transformation of Alberta’s education system, one that challenges commonly held beliefs and leads to new structures and approaches.”

The report says some potential changes that could be looming in the near future may be “uncomfortable,” but necessary.

However, principals of change remain vague in the report, but it hinted at a possibility of seeing school board members appointed rather than elected.

“Elected boards will not be disbanded,” Education Minister Dave Hancock said during the announcement yesterday.
