BC’s Education Plan is based on a simple vision:

Capable young people thriving in a rapidly changing world.

To achieve this, we need an education system that better engages students in their own learning and that fosters the skills and competencies they will need to succeed. The focus for this transformation is the movement to increasingly personalized learning, which is enabled and supported by quality teaching and learning, flexibility and choice, and high standards.

An Update to the BC's Education Plan will posted on January 29th, 2015
