End Discovery Learning

Focusing on Essential Skills: Ending “Discovery Learning”

Despite the NDP claiming to be the party that supports education, in 2017 Alberta saw more than 40 per cent of Grade 9 public school students fail their math provincial achievement tests. 

Reading scores also declined.

Alberta should be a world leader in outcomes for students. Instead, we had been falling behind.

That’s why we promised during the election campaign to get rid of educational fads like the so-called” discovery” or “inquiry” learning and get back to essential skills.

And we’ve kept our promise. 

While the NDP were focused on discovery learning, we are focused on developing a new curriculum that gives students a strong foundation of essential skills and knowledge.

Promises made. Promises kept.
