Aboriginal Education in Canada

This two part series offers an hour long panel discussion on Aboriginal Education in Canada. While it is filmed in Ontario it discusses ideas and concepts of a national perspective. Part 1: Aboriginal Education Past and Present discusses the history of education for Aboriginal children in Canada, from residential schooling to current realities for Aboriginal students being educated in the Canadian public school system and the struggles they endure as a result. Part 2: Solutions for the Future looks at specific self-governed reserve schools, and also offers some good examples of how public schools can do a better job at integrating aboriginal curriculum into the daily curriculum.

About smyers

Hi Everyone, I am a high school alternate school teacher living in Vancouver, BC. I have been teaching for 15 years, though I am not sure where all that time has gone. I love working with teenagers, and am grateful that I have the opportunity to share my love of learning with young people every day. It's a pretty sweet gig!
