Our current a school system is ill equipped to form the minds and hearts of future generations. It is divorced from the family which should be the primary source of education and guidance for a child.

I am signing because I believe all students should receive the same funding model regardless of 'classroom'. By homeschooling our daughter, we pay the same taxes yet her education isn't financially supported by the Alberta Government. We receive $850 - Language Arts program cost $250 alone so we are always well above this $850 on learning materials alone. We do it for her - spenď what we have to - but why the unfairness? Nevermind that we are 40km from town so $0 bussing...

I’m a homeschooler. It only makes sense for the government to give us the same amount of money as they do the schools. So we also can give our children the best possible education and have access to more resources.

Equitable funding, based on need as is currently done in the public school system would go a long way to assisting families with disabilities access the extra support needs in their homeschool setting.

Im a homeschooling mom. We are not rich. My children deserve the same funding as institutionalized school children that my families tax dollars have paid into.
