New report on First Nations education
One of the most serious problems facing Canada’s Aboriginal peoples is the absence of an education system that consistently supports and delivers positive outcomes for students. This issue is now being taken seriously and was the focus of The National Panel on First Nation Elementary and Secondary Education for Students on Reserve, a joint effort of the federal government and the Assembly of First Nations.
The panel includes Caroline Krause, who was actively involved in the Environics Institute’s Urban Aboriginal Peoples Study (UAPS) as a member of the Advisory Circle. Caroline is a nationally-recognized Aboriginal educator, and most recently was on the Faculty of Education at the University of British Columbia.
