MB introduces legislation requiring students, teachers to learn Indigenous history

December 4, 2015

Manitoba has introduced legislation that would mandate the First Nation, Métis and Inuit Education Policy Framework, which would ensure that all students and teachers in the province learn about Indigenous history and culture and the legacy of residential schools. “Following the release of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s final report last summer, we share a responsibility to educate students about what happened in Canada’s residential schools and move forward in a spirit of reconciliation, mutual understanding, and respect,” said Education and Advanced Learning Minister James Allum. “By educating our future generations, we can learn from our past actions and work together to build a more inclusive and just Canada.” CTV News (CP) | MB
