The Critical Education Project brings teachers together from the North Coast and Skeena regions of Northern British Columbia for teacher-led inquiry on democracy, education, and the economy.

The promise of public education can only be fulfilled when economic and other barriers to education are dismantled. The Critical Education Project is a regional network of teachers who are committed to seeing this through.

Removing these barriers requires more than changing schools and classrooms alone, as the underlying conditions and political choices that lead to poverty’s existence must also be transformed.

Ending poverty and expanding education are linked in both directions. To end poverty requires universal public education. And the provision of universal public education requires an end to poverty.

Our guiding question:

The project’s work is done in the territories of the Gitxsan, Haida, Haisla, Nisga’a, Tagish, Tahltan, Ts’msyen, and Wet’suwet’en Nations.
