SASKATOON – The McDowell Foundation Board of Directors has approved more than $88,000 in education research funding. The money will support seven new teacher-led projects for the upcoming school year.
Funding will support teachers in Saskatoon, Regina, La Ronge and teachers in the North East and Sun West School Divisions. Research projects will explore student mental health and reconciliation and the educational experiences of refugee children. Other projects will look at the sense of belonging amongst students and staff in an Islamic faith-based school and parent engagement in rural settings.
