StEps for Students is an organization hoping to discover other ways to meet the needs of every student. 1. Build and Bridge Collaborative Input and Relationships: - joining varied community resources - empowering children's voices - creating positive dialogue with students, teachers, parents, community members, administrators and government to find solutions to our educational challenges.

On July 1st, 2010, the StEps movement will hit the road to walk and bike throughout British Columbia in an effort to gather stories and ideas regarding the challenges faced by our provincial education system. These conversations are essential to creating an education system that meets the true needs of all students.

Join the conversation! Let's take StEps together to regain hope and confidence in an education system that meets the true needs of its students.

2. Class sizes that meet the needs of teachers and students: - class sizes that are small enough to encourage growth of meaningful relationships between teachers and students
