Honouring the Children: Shadow report to the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child (print) (2012)
Don’t let the official title fool you. Written by youth and adults, this book looks at the impact of Canada’s unequal education funding. It’s estimated that at minimum, students attending on-reserve schools receive $2,000 less per year per student than schools located off reserve. And yet Canada prides itself on offering good and equal education. What is the impact of this huge gap, and how are Indigenous students organizing to change it? How can you support them? A great resource for classrooms, unions, NGOs and churches alike. Co-produced with the First Nations Child and Family Caring Society.
