Jason Kenney and Adriana LaGrange’s decision to reopen schools this fall with no additional support is dangerous.

This plan puts our kids at risk, and will deepen the pandemic.

THREAD #abed #ableg
While proper cleaning, more hand washing, daily screening, physical distancing are all necessary measures… the UCP have chosen not to invest in meaningful measures to improve school safety.

There is no increase in per-capita student funding.

After a series of deep cuts to the education budget, the UCP is now asking schools to implement safety obligations in school system that has fewer resources to accomplish this task.

3/ #ableg #abed
There is no class size limit because the government refuses to reinvest in teachers.

That means we will still have classes of 40 kids, unlike other places. Ontario is capped at 15 kids.

4/ #ableg #abed
There is no plan for set class days or alternating class days.

In B.C., kids are going back to school on alternate days to limit interactions between different grades and age groups.

There is no plan for that in Alberta.

5/ #ableg #abed
Later this week, we will be releasing a detailed plan for the safe reopening of Alberta schools.

Our plan will include a cap on class sizes.

6/ #ableg #abed
The most important thing we can do to keep kids safe.

The Premier is moving forward with a thoughtless, reckless, and negligent plan that puts our kids at risk.
