Abstract:

"Saskatchewan Urban Native Teacher Education Program (SUNTEP) graduates teaching in and administrating Saskatchewan urban schools are tasked with closing the academic gap between Aboriginal students and other students by 2020. At the same time, they are called upon to tend to the mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual development of Aboriginal students. This entails not only academic teachings, but also involves collaboration with the Aboriginal community, coordination of Elders' activities in the school, and teaching from the Treaty Kit, as well as advising, supporting, and educating non-Aboriginal teachers about Aboriginal culture, history and spirituality.-- Excerpt from the Executive Summary.
