Select Standing Committee on Finance recommends increase to education budgets in 2015

Released November 13, 2015: Select Standing Committee on Finance and Government Services Report, November 2015

Once again, the Committee recommends MORE FUNDING FOR K-12 EDUCATION. Will the government listen to British Columbians and to their own Committee this year? Last year they didn’t.

An excerpt:

“The recommendations presented to the Committee from organizations and individuals across the province suggest current funding levels and assistance are inadequate, which is causing significant operational and program delivery problems in schools throughout B.C….The Committee ascertains that additional funding is necessary to ensure the provision of quality public education and to properly meet the increased costs that schools are currently facing.”
