ABOUT YUKON EDUCATION
Within this Self Governing Agreement (SGA) governance model, the province or territory retains ultimate authority over laws, regulations, and policies setting forth education standards and criteria for academic success.
(1) identify foundations for educational development, especially in the area of science curriculum development, consistent with social development processes seen as valid and culturally located for YFN;
(2) identify culturally located and appropriate responsive pedagogy for YFN;
(3) implement and evaluate the success of the implementation of these social development foundations and classroom pedagogies, including curriculum materials.
The outcomes of this project are of critical importance for not only the communities involved but also the wider umbrella of Yukon and Canadian FN communities currently aspiring to see an improvement of the educational outcomes for their citizens based upon their cultural terms
