    Promotional Information

    'First Nations Education Policy in Canada clearly articulates an alternative to the current system of First Nations education, which is riddled with problems. Jerry Paquette and G&3233;rald Fallon have made a major contribution to the field by bringing together a stunning breadth of literature with a real sense of care.' -- Jean-Paul Restoule, Department of Adult Education and Counselling Psychology, OISE/University of Toronto

Gérald Fallon is an adjunct professor in the Department of Educational Administration at the College of Education, University of Saskatchewan and Director of Human Resources, School District #68 (Nanaimo-Ladysmith).


    'Paquette and Fallon provide an excellent primer on First Nations education policy, while offering important conceptual thoughts and concrete understandings on how First Nations have positioned within the social and cultural context of Canada... I would particularly recommend it for Aboriginal education courses.' -- Mark Aquash , Great Plains Quarterly: vol21: 02: 2011
