Easterville Education Review.
Sealey, D. Bruce; Riffel, J. Anthony
The document outlines a concrete framework for the development of education in Easterville, Manitoba (a Cree Indian Reserve), over the next decade. Its purpose is to present a statement of principles and objectives worthy of public discussion and to provide specific recommendations in response to current problems. Based on a review of student achievement, the report indicates that achievement levels are similar to other northern Canadian native communities, but are below national averages and not acceptable. The report emphasizes that improving achievement is a complex task, requiring time and shared responsibility. Identified as factors for which the school is responsible are curriculum, school organization, quality of teaching and administration, pupil promotion policy, special services, language of instruction, materials, and resources. Cited as parent responsibilities are emphasis on attendance and achievement, value attached to education, and support for their children's work. Included as student responsibilities are effort, commitment to school, attendance, and support for each other academically. The report provides recommendations including developing a bilingual program; restructuring the elementary program around skill, discovery, and expressed arts subjects; dropping grades 11 and 12; balancing academic, vocational, and exploratory subjects in grades 7-10; providing field trips; and emphasizing adult education.
