Abstract: Meeting the needs of Aboriginal students and their families’ calls for meaningful connections. The history of schooling for Aboriginal people is an issue that many Aboriginal families are dealing with. Policies to assimilate the ‘Indian’ leading up to residential schooling are two of the leading issues. My experience working in private band operated schools and public schools helped me understand various issues in school that can be connected to ways that Aboriginal people were treated in residential schools. Looking at the data collected on Aboriginal people and funding for both types, band operated and public, of schools help shed some light on issues. The new, over ten years ago, efforts to reconcile with Aboriginal groups through enhancement agreements are showing some positive connections. More people are starting to self-identify as Aboriginal which is one of the first signs that efforts are paying off and starting to work.
