Improving Education on Reserves: A First Nations Education Authority Act

Michael Mendelson, July 2008

A decade ago, the 1996 Census found that approximately 60 percent of First Nation on-reserve residents aged 20 to 24 had not completed high school. The 2006 Census results are unchanged: approximately 60 percent of First Nation on-reserve residents aged 20 to 24 still have not completed high school. The explanations for the lack of educational progress are several, ranging from the history of colonialism and forced assimilation through residential schools to the prevalence of poverty. On reserve, these factors are often compounded by an inadequate school system. The current on-reserve school system resembles village schools with none of the supports offered by modern school boards and provincial departments of education. Financing is unrelated to educational needs.
