Policy Note by Suzanne Smythe: Lifting tuition fees for adult basic education is just the beginning

Suzanne Smythe is one of the BC educators who started the Adult Basic Education is a Basic Right! blog in response to the BC Liberals 2014 policy changes that ushered in a bleak period for adult basic education (ABE) learners in the province. Now it is August 2017, and the new BC NDP government has fulfilled a key election promise – the reinstatement of tuition-free ABE. Tuition-free ABE is one part of a larger discussion, and Symthe gives a welcome and full explanation here┬áin the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives – BC Policy Note (August 29, 2017).
