The head of an Alberta advocacy group for parents is defending the public funding of private schools as a way to save taxpayers money.

"It is a false narrative to claim that independent education removes dollars from the public system," said Donna Trimble, executive director of Parents for Choice in Education, pointing to a study commissioned by her group. "It actually saves dollars from the public system."

Trimble spoke out after an Edmonton-area Christian school board's refusal to implement LGBTQ government guidelines prompted calls from critics to pull funding and review the allocation of provincial dollars to Alberta private schools.
