Key Policy Issues in Aboriginal Education: An Evidence-Based Approach

This document, agreed upon with the Canadian provincial and territorial ministers of education with Learn Canada 2020, outlines their dedication and commitment to improving the outcomes for Aboriginal students. It identifies the gaps in academic achievement and graduation rates between non-Aboriginal and Aboriginal students as an important area for attention. The CMEC (Council of Ministers of Education Canada) Aboriginal Education Action Plan outlines strategies for addressing these gaps. One such strategy is “strengthening the capacity for evidence-based decision making.” With this goal, CMEC instructed a report to consider how better data and evidence can be structured to support jurisdictions’ efforts to increase the academic achievement of Aboriginal students in provincial and territorial elementary and secondary schools.
