My name is Theresa Ng. I am a parent, former teacher, and lifetime Albertan who is passionate about ensuring high quality education for all students and families in our province. I am also a strong advocate for freedom, truth, respect and democracy.
This website is intended to inform Albertans about various changes, challenges and choices affecting our education system and to provide information on how people can respond and further engage in these important topics.
This blog began in January 2016 in order to promote awareness of Alberta Education’s “Guidelines for Best Practices: Creating Learning Environments that Respect Diverse Sexual Orientations, Gender Identities and Gender Expressions“. At the time, my intention was to bring increased clarity and balance to a complex issue that had been overwhelmed by differing viewpoints and values, assumptions and emotionally loaded language.
As the issues have evolved over time, so too has the purpose and scope of this blog. I have now begun to address other aspects of the education system, including curriculum and legislation, as well as more global issues such as freedom, democracy and respect.
My hope has always been to empower Albertans with the information they need in order to draw their own conclusions and encourage increased engagement in the political decision-making process.
As the adage says “Knowledge is power” – and it is only when we are fully informed that we can make the best decisions for ourselves, our families and the future of our province.
Starting in 2017 I also began working part-time as the Communications Advisor for Parents for Choice in Education (PCE), an Alberta-based, non-profit organization advocating for excellence in education through maximum parental choice. I encourage you to check out parentchoice.ca and sign-up on the PCE homepage in order to stay up-to-date through valuable monthly newsletters and alerts.
