First Nations and Metis Education and Employment Joint Task Force Submission

The above document link includes a summary analysis of results of an online survey on First Nations and Metis education conducted by RealRenewal via social media in the fall of 2012. The questions were based on questions posed by the Joint Task Force on First Nations and Metis Education, formed to review education and employment issues in Saskatchewan.

To ensure unfiltered representation of peoples’ input, verbatim responses to the survey questions were also provided to the task force, with any identifying information removed.

The document also includes a paper on the related issue of community schooling, based on input received through workshops, meetings and interviews conducted by RealRenewal, as well as an analysis of relevant literature and interviews with First Nations education practitioners.

Combined, the content forms the basis of a series of recommendations that were submitted in writing to the Joint Task Force in November 2012. RealRenewal also requested an in-person meeting to discuss the findings, but to date the Task Force has not responded with an invitation to meet.
