Alberta's opposition NDP has launched a survey on class sizes to get a clearer picture of how many students there are per classroom in 2023-24.
NDP's education critic Rakhi Pancholi said that the UCP government is not reporting about class sizes for the last 4 years.
She's heard some classrooms across the province have 30 to 35 students this school year.
MLA for Edmonton-Whitemud Pancholi said we wants the UCP to build more schools, hire more teachers and education assistants, and increase funding.
At the same time, Education Minister Demetrios Nicolaides said Alberta is spending $2 billion over the next three years, including $820 million to hire more than 3,000 teachers and education staff.
"As well, we've already approved 58 school projects across the province, and I will be working to build more schools in our growing communities," He said.
