ATC Education Committee
“We need to promote and validate a holistic education system with a strong emphasis on virtues, values, language and culture”.
“Education starts at home, at a young age, with parental guidance and support and carries on into adult life.”
“Our culture, history and traditions should be included in the education of our children so that they become proud of who they are.”
“We need quality education and we must be aware that they have choices as to what we accept for our children. “We must act upon what we value, it is our responsibility to get involved”.
“Our schools need parents and community involved to support children.”
“We must be advocates of education as it is the key to future self-sufficiency. Education can be format or informal, but we should never close our minds to the possibilities of learning.”
“Our people must get an education with our own vision, culture and language and use it in the community. “
“Our students need to achieve like anyone in the province and with positive attitudes and support from the community.”
“First Nations should be excited about being in school where they can reach their potential to achieve their career goals.”
“As native people we became lost along the way so we have to regroup to make education better for our children.”
