Updated Graduation Requirements Review. A Brief to the Ministry of Education from the British Columbia Teachers' Federation. Revised
British Columbia Teachers' Federation
The British Columbia Teachers' Federation (BCTF) is a union of professionals that represents the 41,000 teachers in BC's public-education system. The BCTF is committed to success for every student in a strong and stable public-education system. In reviewing the current BC graduation requirements and plans for the draft curriculum in the fall of 2012, the BCTF encouraged discussion and input from all members, and specifically requested teachers who sit on BCTF committees and provincial specialist associations (PSAs) to provide advice. The BCTF made its original submission in December 2012. BCTF reviewed, revised, and resubmitted feedback based on the current context and progress to date. The BCTF recognizes that the Ministry of Education (the Ministry) has received input from many sources suggesting amendments to the graduation requirements. This brief provides recommendations for consideration and details conditions needed for a successful change strategy for curriculum implementation and graduation requirements.
