A Calgary, AB accredited private Christian school is being investigated by the Ministry of Education for their sciences lessons, after a parent noticed this comment in their child’s report card:
Alberta’s education minister is being called on to investigate the curriculum being taught at a city private school after a report card surfaced online that stated kids were taught in a science class that God was behind the patterns of sunrises and sunsets as well as the phases of the moon.
Some may say that a private Christian school should be able to do what they want. But this is not true: to be accredited, they must follow rules. And this is how it should be, to protect parents. Parents should understand what it means to be accredited. There should be no chance that a firm Christian parent would seek out solid education with a solid Christian message and be surprised they only got the Christian message, and not solid education.
I suppose unaccredited schools can do whatever they’d like.
