Education for Aboriginal Peoples in Canada: An Overview of Four Realms of Success
Preston, Jane P.
Diaspora, Indigenous, and Minority Education, v10 n1 p14-27 2016
In line with an Aboriginal worldview of interconnectivity, I outline successful educational programs, policies, and services for Aboriginal peoples in Canada. These programs and initiatives are presented within four thematic areas related to (a) early childhood education, (b) Aboriginal pedagogy, language, and culture (throughout kindergarten to Grade 12), (c) postsecondary education, and (d) governance and partnerships. These issues are then positioned within the concept of ethical space. The insight from this information is intended to assist teachers, educational leaders, and policy makers in promoting ongoing educational achievement for Aboriginal learners.
