First Nations, Metis and Inuit Education Policy Framework: Progress Report, 2008
Alberta Education
This progress report describes the work currently underway toward improving the success of First Nations, Metis and Inuit (FNMI) students in Alberta. It provides an update on the progress made since the release of the Framework in 2002 and the 2004 Progress Report up to December 31, 2007. Since the release of the Framework, a new Ministry of Advanced Education and Technology was created. Alberta Education continues to lead the implementation of the Framework, while Advanced Education remains involved in various initiatives and as a member of the FNMI Education Advisory Committee. In this report, current action and recent progress in FNMI education are referenced against the goals and strategies recommended in the FNMI Education Policy Framework and Alberta Education's Business Plan Goals. Improving FNMI student success is a shared responsibility. It requires continued collaboration among students and parents, Aboriginal communities, various education stakeholders and government to implement strategies to enhance educational opportunities for FNMI learners in the province. The Ministry is committed to ensuring that the life-long learning aspirations and potential of FNMI individuals and communities are realized through a responsive and accountable education system. Alberta Education will continue to review the FNMI Education Policy Framework, to identify what has been achieved to date, which areas of FNMI education may need to be strengthened and to set strategic priorities for FNMI education throughout the education system in Alberta.
