More British Columbia students will benefit from the traditional knowledge and culture of Indigenous peoples, thanks to a new Indigenous teacher education curriculum at Vancouver Island University (VIU).
Beginning in September 2019, British Columbian students entering their final years of secondary school will benefit from a modernized graduation program, as well as an innovative new curriculum.
More than 7,000 students in Surrey will move from portables into classrooms over the next three years, thanks to joint efforts by the B.C. government and the Surrey School District to accelerate school construction.
Secondary students with a passion for coding and science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) will now have more opportunities to expand their skillsets and participate in the Play to Learn program, thanks to a one-time $230,000 provincial government grant that will expand the program.
Indigenous students in B.C. are completing secondary school at the highest rate in history with increased supports and an improved, modern curriculum that accurately reflects the history of Indigenous peoples in British Columbia.
As enrolment continues to grow, more students in the K-12 public education system are benefiting from increased investments and additional teachers supporting students.
