Stop School Fees Campaign

Stop School Fees Campaign

BC Schools have charged fees for years. In the last four years the fees have become more common and larger. The problem has been made worse due to Provincial government cuts to school board budgets.

Local School Trustee John Young talks a good line about school fees being illegal in British Columbia. In 1997, he successfully sued his own schoolboard to ban fees from the Victoria School District. Now he's on the campaign trial again, and he wants to stop illegal school fees right across BC.

Alan Rycroft is at his side providing strategic and public relations advice. You can hear about why school fees are illegal and what to do about them on C-FAX (Victoria) and CKOV radio (Kelowna) and other media outlets around the province. You can also visit Professor John Young's Illegal School Fees web site at:
