Hundreds Tell Alberta Government "Don't Drop the Ball" on Education

Yesterday hundreds of Albertans gathered for a "Don't Drop the Ball" rally to protest funding shortfalls that have forced school boards across the province to lay off hundreds of teachers and increase class sizes. Alberta Liberal MLA Hugh MacDonald spoke on the steps of the Legislature in defence of public education, and suggested that the sustainability fund should be used to cover the funding shortfall.

While I haven't watched the video...should the title not be "...don't drop the ball on Education"

It certainly should be! I've posted about health care so often that I titled this post instinctively. Thanks Sean - it's fixed now.
