Abstract:

Can Inspiring Education: a Dialogue with Albertans be claimed as one of the top world-leading liberating initiatives? Since 2008, the Alberta Government has been engaging public dialogue towards envisioning an education system to meet the demands of the future. Including the marginalized populations into such a process presents a holistic approach to empower these groups towards liberation, to the benefit of all society. Although there appears to be an effort to include the First Nations people and youth, it is difficult to determine how effective the Initiative is in drawing such groups into the dialogue and weighting their responses. A research project, consisting of conducting a workshop to capture ideas for the Initiative, from national and international youth participants, allowed researchers to observe the Initiative from an academic perspective. In 2010, the Initiative’s steering committee released a report based on the public input which included a set of “guiding principles” towards policy development. By comparing the ideas that were conveyed at the workshop with those principles the researchers felt some key points could be included into the principles to increase the inclusion of the marginalized groups. From the research it appears Inspiring Education is an unprecedented opportunity to liberate the public to chart their destiny, but more importantly, a larger opportunity to ensure the marginalized groups are not further marginalized. The Initiative presents the academic community a role to engage, reflect, and fine-tune the process towards qualifying the claim of Inspiring Education as being a world-class liberalizing process.
