Indigenous Education K-12

Overview

"Although there are two distinct aspects to Aboriginal Education (i.e., education of Aboriginal students and education about Aboriginal peoples in BC and Canada), there is remarkable overlap between what is involved in achieving success with respect to each." (Fom Aboriginal Worldviews and Perspectives in the Classroom: Moving Forward, BC Ministry of Education, 2015).

The New BC Curriculum

"Many years ago, classroom resources had few references to Aboriginal people or, if they did, it was often superficial or incorrect. As curriculum processes evolved, resources began to include some information about Aboriginal people but not how Aboriginal perspectives and understandings help us learn about the world and how they have contributed to a stronger society. Now, with the education transformation, the province is attempting to embed Aboriginal perspectives into all parts of the curriculum in a meaningful and authentic manner." (From Aboriginal Education, BC Ministry of Education).
