Education in Nelson House: A Report for Community Discussion.
Riffel, J. Anthony; Sealey, D. Bruce
The purposes of this report are to assess the present N-9 school system in Nelson House (a Manitoba Cree Indian Reserve); to assess educational views held by teachers, administrators, and community members concerning the Nelson House school system; to recommend improvements for the present school system and plans for a new N-12 school; and to provide a basis for community discussion and involvement in education. Data were obtained from interviews, observation, and through examination of school documents. Twenty-six of 30 teachers provided information on educational goals, curriculum, instruction, special education, professional development, school organization, leadership, and their views on high school programs. Twenty-one community residents provided input on educational objectives, bilingual education, parental responsibility, satisfaction with the school, and changes since local control was implemented. The report is organized thematically in five sections: a brief history of education in Nelson House; information about the system of education, student achievement, and community opinions about education in Nelson House today; recommendations for the future of education in Nelson house; a schedule for implementation of recommendations; and appendices outlining approaches to teaching native studies in the elementary school, a curriculum for the new high school, and the mastery approach to teaching and learning.
