Budget 2019 includes a large increase in funding for capital projects, such as new school construction and the Seismic Mitigation Program. However, operating funding is essentially maintained at the same level, with additional funding only for meeting the requirements flowing from the teachers' win at the Supreme Court of Canada and for increased enrolment. There are no funds to bring back programs that have been lost to cuts, nor are there funds directed to addressing the inclusion and equity issues that families across BC are experiencing.
