With the upcoming provincial election here in BC, the news about Premier Christy Clark's "top-up", political donations and the hot-button topic of public education here in BC it makes you consider all the things at play. #FreshGrade
is a very useful assessment tool and it is made in BC to boot! HOWEVER
things kind of get fishy and gray when the creator of Freshgrade donates a 6-figure amount to the BC Liberals and the BC Liberals have been touting this tool as the next best thing since sliced bread in education.
I've been searching for the donation records on BC Elections website but no such luck the past few days. Seems like no donation records after January 2016 are on their site!
At least the BC Liberals have a public record of all their donors for this past year and current year.http://www.bcliberals.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/01/2016-Contributions.pdf
In here, you can see Lane Merrifield's $100,000 donation to the BC Liberals on page 179. He's the CEO and founder.https://www.freshgrade.com/company/team/
