New OECD Report: Promising Practices in Supporting Success for Indigenous Students

August 10, 2017 at 2:00 pm Leave a comment

On Wednesday, August 9th, the International Day of the World’s Indigenous Peoples, the OECD released a new report: Promising Practices in Supporting Success for Indigenous Students

The report tracks strategies used in 6 Canadian provinces and territories, as well as Australia and New Zealand, to prioritize success for Indigenous students.

While some of these areas are making progress, there is still a lot of work to be done to make a marked difference in the lives of Indigenous children and youth.

The report emphasizes the importance of quality early childhood education, forging strong relationships with Indigenous leaders and communities, and supporting teachers in developing cultural competence.

A summary of the report was compiled by Andreas Schleicher on the OECD blog.

The Professional Library has some resources to help educators continue this work and provide a positive educational experience for Indigenous students:

We also carry material to help educators teach about the experiences and traditions of Indigenous peoples:
