InFocus: Could an Indigenous School Division turn out more grads than public school?

APTN InFocus with Cheryl McKenzie:

Advocates are trying to develop an Indigenous School Division for the city of Winnipeg.

In this edition our guests share their vision for an education system that they believe would perform better, especially for Indigenous students.

We also get perspective from the Akwesasne Freedom School in Roosevelt, New York where education means full emersion into the language and culture of their people.

Guests include, Tasha Spillett, Bill Sanderson and Kanerahtens Tara Skidders.
