Description

The Canadian education system has its historic roots in the schools of Europe, particularly those of England. While education in Canada has evolved, the colonial influence of Great Britain and the neo-colonial influence of the United States cannot be underestimated. In an era when educators are increasingly aware of the diversity of their student population and the multiplicity of world views colliding in the classroom, the colonial Amer-european educational model is increasingly scrutinized. As Canadian educators become more aware of Aboriginal and immigrant perspectives and educational needs, the necessity of decolonizing the curriculum becomes ever more apparent.
