Provinces can set policy/make educational law
Provinces can work together on initiatives
Provinces can work with other countries on initiatives
Schools, students and educators do fall under federal laws when working for/in a Alberta schools
Charter of Rights and Freedoms

The power to determine education in Canada largely falls to each province
Q: Do you know what school board oversees your school?

some school boards have "changed" their name
Calgary School District No. 10 = CBE
There are public, separate, French and charter boards
School Boards are empowered by the Provincial Government to "run" local schools.
