No release on horizon for AB higher ed tuition funding review

February 9, 2018

A comprehensive review launched by the Alberta Department of Advanced Education in October 2016 that was described as a “top-to-bottom review of everything” has yet to be released. The Edmonton Journal reports that the advisory group was expected to wrap up their deliberations in May 2017, and the report was promised for release in the fall. “We have a number of options to consider and we want to make sure we get our policy right so that we can continue to provide access to higher education in this province so that Albertans can get the training they need to get good jobs,” explained Advanced Education Minister Marlin Schmidt, who was reportedly unable to give a release timeline for the report. Edmonton Journal
