Thompson Reading Recovery Training Centre Opens

MFNERC opened a Reading Recovery Training Centre in Thompson on September 27 to train First Nations reading recovery teachers in the North.

The goal of the Canadian Institute of Reading Recovery is to ensure that all children experiencing difficulty learning to read and write have access to reading recovery.

Executive Director Lorne C. Keeper is pleased with the initiative since more First Nations students will get access to reading recovery.

MKO Grand Chief Garrison Settee is looking forward to the benefits that this project will bring to First Nations education.

“I think our First Nations should have the same quality of education that other students have,” he says. “We need to revolutionize the way we deliver education in First Nations and we can do that through partnerships.”
