As Alberta Education moves toward a school curriculum that better reflects the diversity of students across the province, an Edmonton youth advocate says he believes the changes will keep more kids in school.

Last Thursday, Alberta Education released survey results from parents, teachers and students, as it continues its 6-year overhaul of the curriculum that began last year.

Of the 32,391 respondents, 78 per cent "moderately agreed" that it was important for K-12 curriculum to reflect the diversity of Alberta's population.
