Report on Aboriginal Education

March 9, 2007

The Society for the Advancement of Excellence in Education (SAEE) has released a report aimed at "reducing the achievement gap for Aboriginal learners," based on a review of 10 positive case studies.  The study reports that just 9.3% of 20-34-year-olds from Waskaganish proceed to PSE, compared to 46.9% of the general Quebec population.  The report also acknowledges student centres in Ottawa and Montreal , operated through the Cree School Board, assist students from Aboriginal communities in their post-secondary studies.  SAEE News Release
