About Parent Advocacy
The PAC believes in supporting our public schools. There are concerns about the erosion of funding and the increased reliance on the PAC to raise funds. Our PAC chair has written letters to Minister Fassbender and Minister Bernier. Here is the Minister’s response.
There is also a group called the parent advocacy network (http://www.panvancouver.ca/). The Parent Advocacy Network for Public Education is a grassroots collective of parents from over 37 schools (and growing) across Vancouver who share a commitment to public education. Our mission is to connect parents and PACs across the district to support one another in advocacy. The network enables us to share information, experiences and stand together in protecting public education.
