Stop Bill 15

April 5, 2022 Jason Schilling, ATA President


Recently, Minister of Education Adriana LaGrange tabled Bill 15, the Education (Reforming Teacher Profession Discipline) Amendment Act. 

Make no mistake: this bill is an attack on teachers and your profession. 

Accompanying this bill were myths, misinformation and unfounded allegations of your Association protecting bad teachers. I am asking you to stand vigilant in the face of this flurry of falsehoods. 

The Association takes great pride in a fair but firm process that has been used effectively for over 85 years to ensure that high standards of conduct are upheld. This legislation is completely unnecessary and is only being introduced as retribution toward you and your Association, which has not allowed this government’s disastrous decisions to go unchallenged. 

The premier is embroiled in scandals and an unprecedented challenge to his leadership. 

The minister faces non-stop criticism for her complete mismanagement of one of the top education systems in the world. 

The whole government needs desperately to change the channel and cause distraction. So they do what they have always done — they lash out at their scapegoats. This is nothing new.

The coming days and weeks may get ugly. But now, more than ever, we need solidarity in the face of this threat.

We need to come together as One Profession United, to defend ourselves, our profession and public education.

Please visit to send an email to your MLA now, to express your opposition to Bill 15.

Stay tuned for more.
Yours in public education. 

Jason Schilling, ATA President
