Education for All Children in Canada

Is it acceptable that some children in Canada cannot go to school, while most children do?

Most children in Canada can go to school, but some Aboriginal children can not.   The Auditor General did an investigation and showed that less money is spent on education for First Nations children than for comparable non-Aboriginal children.

The government has promised to do something about this.  Will it be enough?

On September 26 the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child will ask the government what it has done.  For more analysis, see the chapter on Aboriginal children in this section of the CCRC report: Paying Attention to Vulnerable Children; Accorder une attention particulière aux enfants vulnérables
