NU holds territory-wide consultations, aims to revise Education Act

September 18, 2018

The Government of Nunavut has announced that it will hold Nunavut-wide public consultations on education. A proposal titled Ilinniarniliriniq Turaaqpalliajavut – Our Goals for Education was developed by the Department of Education to provide a starting point for discussion. “An enhanced education system built by and for Nunavummiut is one of this government’s top priorities. It must reflect the values and priorities of the territory, and produce graduates capable of pursuing any avenue they wish,” said Premier Joe Savikataaq. “As a grandparent, community member and Premier, I am committed to making improvements. I hope Nunavummiut will join me in providing their feedback.” The Department will use feedback from the consultations to draft new amendments for submission to the legislative assembly in 2019. NU | Nunatsiaq Online
