Nova Scotia invests in African education

July 17, 2007

The Nova Scotia government has put forward $1.8 million as the first instalment of the promised $4.1 million over four years, to improve education for African-Nova Scotians.  46 recommendations were drafted over 10 years ago by the Black Learners Advisory Committee, including ''hiring more black teachers and changing the curriculum to reflect more African-Nova Scotian history and culture.''  The province has made a commitment to implement these recommendations within 4 years.  The Globe & Mail
