Document Number: 10612Developing a First Nation Education Act: Discussion Guide - Recognizing that the current "non-system" is not working well for Indian- First Nation-students, Canada is moving ahead with a proposed First Nation Education Act. In Developing a First Nation Education Act: Discussion Guide the authors argue that only such an act would provide a full range of support, stable and predictable funding, and accountability for First Nation students while still allowing for shared governance. The recommendations for developing a strong and accountable education system for First Nation schools may be considered relevant for struggling school districts in the United States.
