The Political Struggle of Independent Schools in British Columbia

by Cunningham, Victoria

Since 1966, the Federation of Independent Schools (FISA) has voiced the need for freedom of choice in education and for educational diversity, then a radical notion. Public opinion was weighed against the idea of having independent schools although they had been around for a century. Public funding had even less support. Still, only eleven years later, the B.C. Legislature passed the Independent Schools Support Act. What caused such a drastic change in the province? And where is this movement at today? What lessons can be gleaned from this example for other provinces and states?
