FACE (Families Against Cuts to Education) has provided a very simple email tool to write to the Premier, the Minister of Education, the Opposition critic for education, the NDP Opposition leader, the leader of the Green Party, and your MLA, to tell them what you expect your government to do in the long-term interests of public education.
