Tulani Ackerman in the home stretch for StEps for Students journey

Her summer journey is almost complete, Tulani Ackerman, the Prince Rupert based teacher who has been cycling and walking through BC seeking out a discussion on education in BC has arrived on Vancouver Island and near the end of her tour of the province.

Through her now six week trip she has heard a wide range of thoughts on the current state of education in the province some of which have been posted to her StEps for Students website.

Her trek now takes her into Nanaimo today, with her final destination of Victoria and the Legislature on her horizon for Thursday.

If all goes according to the schedule, she anticipates her journey to end in Victoria with  a picnic for education at the noon hour at the City Hall Centennial Square area and then a twenty  minute walk to mark her arrival at the Legislature in the early afternoon of Thursday

A snapshot of some of the reviews of her journey can be found from the various communities that the StEps for kids tour passed through over the last six weeks.
