How much contribution from each parent should each parent of a child be made to the child's education system?

British Columbia, Canada

The following excerpt is from C.N.G. v. S.M.R., 2007 BCSC 822 (CanLII):

As far as the contribution from each parent is concerned, there is no dispute that the contribution of the parties may be other than in proportion to income: Zarins v. Cochrane, [1998] B.C.J. No. 2116 (S.C.) and that the means of the parties is a factor to be considered in exercising discretion: Baum v. Baum, 2000 BCSC 1835.
