Funding Public Education

This project explores how much funding and how funding is structured to provide a high quality public education system that meets the needs of all children, families and communities in our province.

State of Education in BC

A collection of essays written by IPE/BC Fellows or experts that provide a historical, contextualized view of the current state of public education. Short, easily accessible essays include topics like school finance, curriculum, assessment, technology, special education, and more.

Assessment & Evaluation

Quality assessment and evaluation are essential for quality learning and schooling. This project critiques simplistic approaches to judging the quality of learning and schooling and provides guidance on progressive policies and practices in educational assessment and evaluation.


We will solicit, gather and disseminate narratives about public education. These stories will provide a rich and textured way of knowing about, and then assessing, public education’s progress, limitations, strengths and weaknesses. We are currently seeking funding to support this project. Contact us if you are interested in working with us.
