Education remains a priority for this government. Budget 2013 puts students first and supports the vision of Inspiring Education.
This year’s budget reflects a challenging fiscal climate while continuing to fund core programs and initiatives. We are putting money where it can be most effective and make the biggest difference in the education of Alberta’s young people.
Education’s budget is increasing to accommodate Alberta’s booming student population. This year, support to Alberta’s education system, including capital, will reach $7 billion, an increase of $216 million.
That means that Alberta Education will spend $35 million each day students are in school. This funding commitment reflects the importance government places on education and supporting student learning.
