July 10, 2018

The City of Greater Sudbury, Atikameksheng Anishnawbek First Nation, the Rainbow District School, and Laurentian University will be collaborating on a research initiative titled “Strengthening Education and Improving Academic Success.” The initiative will see the partners conduct research into how curriculum can be developed and modified to improve First Nations student outcomes, learning supports, and learning activities. The findings will also contribute to a global UNESCO research project focused on Indigenous Education. The partners have received funding of nearly $250K over two years from the Government of Canada for the initiative. Newswire
