ABORIGINAL EDUCATION NEEDS TO BE PLACE-BASED

This educational blog post from June 18 of 2014 calls for the integration of place-based learning in Aboriginal education. The author problematizes how simply integrating Aboriginal culture, like language, into the current educational system (based on western values and created for the purpose of homogenization) isn’t enough to address issues of Aboriginal students. He calls for “a different vision of schools in general” where curriculum and teacher training are also revisioned.
