  8. 8. Inuit organization to tacklelow graduation ratesCBC NewsPosted: Mar 30, 2013 10:39 AM CTNational Strategy on Inuit EducationInuit Tapiriit Kanatami, the national Inuit organization, has started a campaign to comeup with solutions to address the low high school graduation rate in Inuit communities.“The drop-out rate is very high in Inuit Nunangat, and were trying to figure out waysof increasing the level of graduation from high school, so that they have a chance togo post-secondary education,” said Mary Simon, chair of ITKs National Committeeon Inuit Education.The national committees research shows students are missing on average 41 daysof school each year. That adds up to two full years by the time students reach highschool, and the committee says attendance is dropping.Simon said there is no easy answer to the problem but that, as a first step, parentsneed to be more involved.
  9. 9. Low AttendanceAll the imaginative, Inuit-produced programs will beineffective unless there are dramatic changes in terms ofcommunity-based norms regarding formal education.Specifically, students need to be in school every day, all day,well rested and eager to learn. Achieving this goal willnecessitate engaging the cooperation of every parent andcaregiver in the community” .• 2011 McGill University research project. Taylor, D.
