Michael Cottrell Ted View Suzanne Bronkhurst Kelly Cardinal

Summary:

Responding to the needs of Indigenous learners to ensure more equitable outcomes in the education system is a pressing issue within the province. This project is a case study exploring the success of Indigenous students at a French emersion school in the province where the majority of Indigenous students are performing at or above grade level. Using a “promising practice” approach this research aims to identify school contexts and factors contributing to this achievement so that they may be better understood and extended more broadly.
