Notes
In the discussion of Aboriginal education in Canada, there are two distinct schools of thought: parallelism and integrationism. In this book leading thinkers on both sides share their perspectives. 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. Aboriginal education in Canada urgently needs improvement.
