Education Review 1966-67. Northwest Territories and Arctic Quebec.
Department of Indian Affairs and Northern Development, Ottawa (Ontario).
The 1966-67 school year was described in this report, which starts with a descriptive comment about the pupils, their distribution in the region, and the spread across different grades. It was noted that the northern curriculum blended content with the social and cultural heritage of the native peoples and took into account differences between the various regions in determining additions to the basic core courses. Recruiting of teachers was facilitated by the excessive number of applications received. All teachers selected were fully qualified, usually possessed teaching experience, and were adaptable to a variety of environmental conditions. During the school year, several construction projects were completed, adding classroom space, and plans were completed or work was begun on a total of 46 more classrooms throughout the region. In addition, a total of 854 residents participated in vocational education courses. Grants, awards, and scholarships were made available to students, and adult education programs were provided in a wide variety of subjects. The report closes explaining that the educational system is the joint responsibility of the Canadian Federal Government and the Government of the Northwest Territories. (BD)
