The proposed reassessment of the Education proposed by Caroline Cochrane was very timely. This will be supported. Our educational outcomes must be raised across the board, especially in the communities. A concerted effort to increase the numbers of indigenous teachers must become a priority.
Education choice must be returned to parents with regards to French schools. The last government spent more resources and effort fighting this position than the projected cost of placing students. Despite the GNWT’s loss in the courts nothing has changed.
The proposed polytechnic concept needs to be fully fleshed out. The path followed by Toronto’s Ryerson University should be studied.
