Module 4.1 Breaking the cycle: Inside a high school that is reimagining indigenous education

Globe and Mail Special Feature:  Dennis Franklin Cromarty High School specifically serves Indigenous students where majority fly in from remote locations.  Students attend this high school on their own free will and choose to do so because the funding for schools in the remote locations they live in is limited.  The school’s “vision statement” strives to help bring into being “a world in which First Nations people succeed without the loss of their identity, and have the courage to change their world according to their values.”  It also aims to have graduates leave “not only with a diploma but the skills, knowledge and confidence to help their home communities heal – by setting positive examples, showing a pride in indigenous culture and identity, and fostering employment on reserves”.
