Congratulations are II be offered II you on the increase in Achievement Level scores across the Province. However, I am absolutely flabbergasted at the low High School Completion rates, with particular note of the sickly % completed by the aboriginal population of this province. My suggestion David would be that you appoint an Aboriginal Czar or Elder who would have complete control over dealing with the specific context of aboriginal afffairs issues in relation to education. This person would work in tandem with the Special Trustee in Northland District #LXI (#61) & in other troubled areas. Another idea might be to appoint specific Trustees of the new Boards to handle aboriginal files in tandem with you & your fine Department of Education staffers.
