Despite years of promises, there’s still a gap: today, far fewer First Nations children graduate from grade 12 than other children in Canada because they aren’t receiving the proper funding and support needed for a quality education. Some good steps have already been taken, from announcements of new funding to agreements on self-determining Indigenous education systems, but a legacy of chronic underfunding of Indigenous education leads to a staggering injustice today: in spring 2018 the Auditor General reported that the real grade 12 graduation rate for Indigenous students is 24 percent compared to the national average of around 90 percent. Ask Parliament to implement the TRC Calls to Action and support Indigenous communities!
