All youth must be educated to the limit of their abilities simply because it adds value to our human capital. 

Education Policy

Liberals are not seriously concerned about the cost of their social policies. Statists are more concerned about implementing their vision than the expense this may create. The end in their eyes justify the means.

Ecumenics believe there are repercussions to this kind of agenda. Becausse stakeholders are not always consulted and the aim is to implement a social agenda the social costs created by liberal policies seem of only marginal concern. There is a sense that in Ontario and elsewhere there is not a full accounting of the costs created by those who favor the policies of the Wynne government. Liberal policy is implemented without a full accounting of the costs.

An educated youth provides more benefits than one who is not educated. Society suffers a loss when its young people fail to rise up to their full potential.

All youth must be educated to the limit of their abilities simply because it adds value to our human capital. There may be an issue with where this money is to come from and how it is to be administered in this system of things but the reality is they are the next generation and it is absolutely necessary they be educated to fit them for their future.

Young people have a right to be treated equally in terms of the equity they represent and to the value they create for society by acquiring new skills and understanding. To demand children get educated without any recompense is to impose the cost of education on them at least partially. Society needs them to be educated so justice demands all students are paid for responding to this social need. It behooves society to pay students for acquiring an education since what they are doing adds value to the community. Society pays a wage to students consistent with the equity they create individually and collectively. Ecumenics provide an average payment that is varied according to the performance of the individual student.

Education policy must ensure a two tiered educational system is not permitted in which children from privileged homes  acquire a better or higher education than those who come from less advantageous backgrounds. Graduates will not need to command a premium for having attained a higher education because of the greater expense a degree represents. They will have been paid for this achievement and time expended. Education policy ensures the most capable students will enter a given field of study.

Educational credits are paid for through an Education Ecumenic. All students belong to the Educational Ecumenic, each student earns credits for the felicity with which he or she aquires an education from the Ecumenic.

We believe this is a policy all governments ought to adopt to ensure all students have an equal and fair access to a quality education.

​The purpose of an education is to teach the children useful knowledge not to further the social engineering objectives of a liberal state. Social engineering policies especially as applied to the most vulnerable is divisive.

Educational hours have to be treated as a valuable resource applied according to the value added. The objective is to equip the student to be a valuable member of society and to make him or her the best example of themselves they can be.

All relavant sectors belong to the Educational Ecumenic but it is parents that must define the educational priorities of the educational system. The Education Ecumenic  sets out the basic curricular for the school detailing the base requirements relating to reading and writing and arithmetic. These are the core studies and must meet certain levels or displace other secondary studies.

The subjects taught, the time allocated and their priority level is specified in a document setting out the boundaries of the educational system. School Boards are elected by the parents. All significant changes to the setting of the curricula has to be approved by the Ecumenic during Board meetings.

Teachers salaries and the salaries of Board Members are set by the Ecumenic at Board Meetings of the Education Ecumenic.

Ecumenics are self-funding in that they 'spend' credits as needed. They are not given a budget in the usual understanding of the term. Each school spends what it must to fulfill its mandate. The Ecumenic schoolboard oversees this spending and the members can make policy during meetings. Members of the Educational Ecumenic are the stockholders and can vote to adjust any failures by the administration or to support positive events during regular and special meetings of the Board.
