Public education – at both K-12 and university levels—will be the focus of an all-candidates’ election forum to be held at 7 p.m. at the Irving K. Barber Centre on the TRU campus on Thursday, April 13.
“All Kamloops region residents should be concerned that our provincial government is committed to a well-resourced education system that meets the needs of all,” said Amanda Jensen, Vice-President of the Kamloops Thompson Teachers Association (KTTA).
In addition to KTTA, the TRU Faculty Association, CUPE 3500, which represents School District 73 educational support workers, and CUPE 4879, which represents TRU university support staff, are hosting the forum.
The forum’s moderator is Dr. Henry Hubert, retired TRU faculty member and Dean of Arts.
