{October 28, 2011}   Articles about Education, and Aboriginal Education that I’ve had the opportunity to be a part

Amidst the Big City, an Aboriginal Public School?

Vancouver’s school board sees potential in a school designed from curriculum up to appeal to urban First Nations youth. Fourth in a series. http://thetyee.ca/News/2011/09/14/Vancouver-Aboriginal-School-Proposal/

In today’s day and age, our world and the society we live in is growing extremely fast, the vast diversity of people should be taught and educated about the positive contributions of Native in Canada.

Throughout my many years of climbing the educational ladder, I’ve discovered and learned that most individuals in the main-stream education system either learn very little or stopped learning about Native people after the fur trade. So does that mean according to Social Studies classes that Native people seem to have dropped off the face of the earth?

Everyone, everywhere can benefit from learning about Native/Aboriginal cultural, history and knowledge.

Staff, parents fear impact of school funding cutbacks http://www.westender.com/articles/entry/staff-parents-fear-impact-of-school-funding-cutbacks/

Many people, parents a like struggle with all of the same issues when it comes to poverty.  The struggle to provide our children with a safe and healthy quality of life. The stress of paying the bills, not having enough money to pay the bills, can have a huge effect on the family.

These issues should no longer be held in the shadows of our communities or society, they should not be frowned upon, or be taboo.  I am willing to have the strength and courage to share my own personal experiences, that I’ve over come and changed in hopes that it encourages other individuals whom may be suffering the same fate to speak up. To help them find their voice.
