MB introduces legislation requiring students, teachers to learn Indigenous history

December 16, 2015

Manitoba has introduced legislation that would mandate the First Nation, Métis and Inuit Education Policy Framework, ensuring that all students and teachers in the province learn about Indigenous history, culture, and the legacy of residential schools. The framework integrates Indigenous perspectives into curricula and provides guidelines for teacher training on related topics. The document also outlines the vision for Indigenous education in the province and highlights activities and programs designed to foster academic success for Indigenous students such as the Treaty Education Initiative. “By educating our future generations, we can learn from our past actions and work together to build a more inclusive and just Canada,” said Education and Advanced Learning Minister James Allum. The framework is currently in draft form and will be updated regularly. MB | Framework Draft | CTV News
