Respect for diversity and the rights of children will be on the agenda at a public meeting on education issues, to be held at 7 p.m. on Wed., Feb. 28 at the Regina Public School Division office, 1600-4th Ave.

“Children have a right to attend school and receive instruction without discrimination under the Education Act,” reads a resolution that will be presented to the assembly on behalf of children with intensive needs. The resolution notes that staff and program cuts threaten education rights, and calls on the Regina Board of Education to advocate for special needs preschool and school-aged children in times of budget cuts.

Another resolution calls for a Respect for Human Diversity Policy, similar to one that was adopted by the Prairie Valley School Division. The policy would provide guidelines to ensure all children feel safe and valued at school, regardless of sexual orientation, race, religion, ability or other factors.

These will join other resolutions concerning Truth and Reconciliation, re-naming Davin School, and promoting peace education.

Motions drafted so far:

All residents are welcome to come to discuss and vote on these motions, as well as to put forward their own issues for discussion and voting.
