Manitoba First Nations School System Makes Public Debut

A new school system operated exclusively by First Nations will make its public debut today.

 

 Sgt. Tommy Prince School on the Brokenhead Ojibway Nation will be the site of the official grand opening of the Manitoba First Nations School System

Hailed as a historic agreement when it was announced last December, the deal increases funding levels while putting jurisdiction over schools in 10 First Nations communities directly in the hands of Indigenous leaders.

The deal will also see federal education funding sent directly to school boards, instead of to chiefs and band councils to disperse.
