Albertans can have their say in the re-design of the province’s Kindergarten to Grade 12 curriculum.

Premier Rachel Notley and Education Minister David Eggen helped unveil the first stage of the Future Ready plan in Edmonton Tuesday.

The first step: an 11 question online survey that also allows parents and students to give whatever freeform feedback they’d like on the direction of Alberta schools.

Already on Eggen’s radar: strengthening, First Nations, Metis and Inuit education.

“We have undertaken a partnership with the truth and reconciliation in Winnipeg, Manitoba, to be the first province to offer comprehensive education in regards to residential schools, in regards to First Nations history, and the Truth and Reconciliation Commission,” he said.

There will also be more emphasis on trades and the environment.

The survey will close November 18, 2016.
