Myths and Realities of First Nations Education



September 10, 2014


The Fraser Institute has published a research paper titled “Myths and Realities of First Nations Education” and as can be seen by the graphic to the left, there is a visible distinction between First Nations and public schools, and not for the right reasons.

The report looks at the per student cost of educating children in public schools compared with reserve schools and the standards required (or not) by both systems.

The authors state that “simply increasing government funding for education does not result in a better education system or increased graduation rates.” You can read the short report on the Fraser Institute’s website here.
