Oilsands companies could get a say in new Alberta curriculum


The Alberta government plans to include oil and gas companies in consultations on the new school curriculum. School boards were asked to come up with groups to provide input on what children should learn. The Edmonton Public School Board plans to ask oilsands companies Suncor and Syncrude what to teach children in kindergarten to Grade 3. "What are we looking for in the graduates of tomorrow. Certainly we have a perspective but we need to hear all stakeholders," said Mark Liguori, assistant superintendent of schools for Edmonton Public.
