Fed. of Sask. Indian Nations call for separate school system
Earlier this week, a panel struck to address Winnipeg's violent crime problems recommended a publicly funded aboriginal school division, which advocates say could teach First Nations language and culture and life-skills courses to help curb high dropout rates for aboriginal students. That was the inspiration for the FSIN to call on Friday for such a publicly funded separate school system in Saskatchewan, which would be similar to the Catholic school system, or the francophone school system, the Conseil des Ecoles Fransaskoises.
