First Nations education in Canada gets a failing grade in a new report.

A national panel on first nation elementary and secondary education released a long-awaited study Wednesday, saying there really is no national system for aboriginal education.

The report called on the federal government to create a body to oversee First Nations education.

It urged the creation of local organizations which would resemble regular school boards and called for more money for the system.

It also said the right of aboriginal children to a good education should be written in law.

"We were struck by the passion and commitment of the young people that we met and all of the people who are committed to First Nations education," said Scott Haldane, the group's chairman.

"We recognized, however, that they do not have a system of support. There isn't, in fact, a First Nations education system in Canada. And without that support, it's very difficult for them to achieve the goals that they have for young people and for young people to achieve their full potential."

According to a Senate Subcommittee on Indian Education Report, the Bureau of Indian Affairs operates 77 boarding schools with 35,309 children (about 9,000 under 9 years of age), and 147 day schools with 16,139 students. The disturbing statistic is that there are also 7,027 BIA employees engaged in education, or one for every seven Indian children in a BIA school.

RW, you have GOT to start actually reading your sources:

"The history of the federal policy towards American Indians, including and especially its education policy, constitutes a national tragedy of the first magnitude. ...."

"The education policy, like the land policy, was to undermine the culture of the American Indian, by uprooting him or her from the home and forcing a disciplined education process in a boarding school environment."

On top of that, at the end of the 1800's there were only about 250,000 natives left alive.

Assume position!!!! :) :) :)
