First Nations Education Policy in Canada: Progress or Gridlock?

by

First Nations Education Policy in Canada: Progress or Gridlock? Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

How can First Nations schools in Canada offer a curriculum that is at once authentically and deeply Aboriginal while comparable in content, quality, and standards to provincial and territorial education? First Nations Education Policy in Canada is a critical analysis of policy developments affecting First Nations education since 1986 and a series of recommendations for future policy changes.

Jerry Paquette and Gerald Fallon challenge the fundamental assumptions about Aboriginal education that have led to a Balkanized and ineffective educational system able to serve few of the needs of students. To move forward, the authors have developed a conceptual framework with which to re-envision the social, political, and educational goals of a self-governing First Nations education system. Offering a sorely needed fresh perspective on an issue vital to the community, First Nations Education Policy in Canada is grounds for critical reflection not only on education but on the future of Aboriginal self-determination.

Book News Annotation:

Paquette (education, U. of Western Ontario) and Fallon (educational studies, U. of British Columbia) analyze as critically and comprehensively as possible, national and provincial policy affecting First Nations education in Canada since 1986, when Paquette's earlier and much briefer assessment was published. In particular, they examine what, if anything, of substance has changed in the policy environment within which First Nations students have been and are being educated in Canada over the past two decades and especially in recent years. They also identify what needs to change in the future. Annotation ©2011 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
