Approaches to Aboriginal Education in Canada
By

Rating
In the crucial discussion of Aboriginal education in Canada, there are two distinct schools of thought: parallelism and integrationism. For the first time in one volume, leading thinkers on both sides share their perspectives, allowing readers to examine this complex and emotionally charged issue from all angles. Parallelism argues for Aboriginal self-determination and independent schools with Aboriginal values at their core, while integrationism advocates improving Aboriginal educational achievement within the conventional system. Both sides share the same goal, however: supporting and helping to realize the vast store of untapped potential in Aboriginal communities. Everyone agrees that Aboriginal education in Canada urgently needs improvement. A vigorous and informed debate can only speed the search for solutions.

Reviews

This book is an important collection of essays by over twenty authors exploring two distinct approaches to Aboriginal education... Widdowson and Howard participate in the debate, but do not dominate it. I found the range of views, the challenging discourses, and the new perspectives to be welcome and refreshing. - Mark Salvor, IPAC NWT Regional Group Book Review Forum The strengths of this volume are its openness and its courage to allow different perspectives to exchange and debate about the longstanding and sometimes conflicting issues of Aboriginal education.... [T]his volume has huge implications for Aboriginal education. - Education Matters: The Journal of Teaching and Learning
