Summary: Indigenous Peoples are diverse, within and across nations. At the same time, Indigenous children have not generally had access to the same quality of education that other children in their country enjoy. This situation arises, in part, because school leaders and teachers have not always been effectively prepared to teach Indigenous students, nor are they necessarily provided with resources to help them develop their capabilities and confidence.
Some teachers and schools are successfully supporting Indigenous students. Indigenous students report feeling supported when the people at their schools:
• Care about them and who they are as Indigenous People;
• Expect them to succeed in education; and,
• Help them to learn about their cultures, histories, and languages.
