Alberta Education is committed to continued learning and improvement to ensure each learner develops the knowledge, skills and attitudes to form the foundations for a successful and fulfilling life. Through an inclusive education system, schools play a vital role in preparing learners to participate fully in a democratic and civil society. Schools and classrooms in Alberta continue to reflect the growing diversity of their communities. In addition to increased opportunities for choice in education, there is also increased understanding among educational leaders in how quality instruction and high expectations affect achievement for each learner. Driving this shift in understanding is the recognition that with the right instructional supports and opportunities, each learner can be successful and leave high school prepared for their future. This has resulted in a shared vision of an inclusive education system that enables and empowers each learner to achieve success.
