Going Places: Preparing Inuit High School Students for a Changing Wider World
Going Places is a new documentary video based on research documenting factors contributing to student graduation from the high schools in Pangnirtung and Clyde River, Nunavut.
Produced by Gemini award winning film maker, Mark Sandiford, the documentary shows that when parental and educator support to students is based on the principles of Inuit Qaujimajatuqangit and sustained by successful school-community partnerships, improvements in graduation rates can take place. Partners in this community-based research include the Nunavut Deparment of Education and the Coalition of District Education Authorities on Nunavut. The research is funded by ArcticNet.
