Not sure what article you're reading exactly.

In Alberta, public funds support Catholic school board operations on a per student basis at about the same level they do for public school boards. In BC, they are supported at 50% or 35% depending on if the school operates at the same per student cost as the public system or not. In effect, a Catholic school in BC is akin to a private school, and the formula means that normalized by population, the number of Catholic schools in BC is wayyyy lower than in Alberta. Ontario has a different formula, but again, they are treated like private schools.

I do feel the Alberta model puts the public school boards at a relative disadvantage comparing with other provinces. It makes no sense from a fiscal conservative sense.
