|Subject:||Rescind these unjustly cuts by making the funding the same for all students no matter what venue they decide to use|

Dear Mr. Rob Fleming,
As a single working mom with two children who relies on my family to support their education with the Independent Distributed Learning (IDL) school, the government’s decision to cut $12 million in funding will severely impact the programming, staffing, and resources available for my children.
The IDL School, Fawkes Academy, has been there to support my children who were denied accommodation in the public school system by providing them with a full educational program. As a concerned parent who has researched the thousands of peer reviewed studies from medical experts and scientists proving harm from the mandatory microwave radiation emitting from wireless devices in our public schools, our government has left us no choice but to home-school my children.
The IDL Schools budgets for the 2020/21 are already set in place, which means the $793.00 deficiency will have to be passed onto the parents by charging tuition fees or increase tuition already in place. This decision will have a huge impact on low-income families, special needs, and people living in the remote rural areas of BC.
My children have the right to equality, equal opportunity, fair treatment, and consistent access to quality education, no matter their circumstances or where they live. We are calling on the Education Minister; Rob Fleming to rescind these unjustly cuts by making the funding the same for all students no matter what venue they decide to use, especially when the public school system refuses to provide a healthy, safe environment for learning.
