The voice of Parents in Nunavut Education


“As parents of students in our education system, we think it’s OK to dare to dream and believe that things can be better than what we see today in our schools. That’s how Nunavut came about, and we believe that if nothing dramatic changes in the governance of our schools, nothing will change.”
