Call To Action:

10. We call on the federal government to draft new
Aboriginal education legislation with the full
participation and informed consent of Aboriginal
peoples. The new legislation would include a
commitment to sufficient funding and would
incorporate the following principles:

i. Providing sufficient funding to close identified
educational achievement gaps within one
generation.

ii. Improving education attainment levels and success
rates.

iii. Developing culturally appropriate curricula.

iv. Protecting the right to Aboriginal languages,
including the teaching of Aboriginal languages as
credit courses.

v. Enabling parental and community responsibility,
control, and accountability, similar to what parents
enjoy in public school systems.

vi. Enabling parents to fully participate in the education
of their children.

vii. Respecting and honouring Treaty relationships.
