The Nishnawbe Aski Nation is out with a report on the critical underfunding of First Nation schools. Deputy Grand Chief Terry Waboose says the current funding system is inadequate and calls it a crisis. Waboose says the Federal Government needs to start matching education funds for First Nations at the same level the Province funds public school boards. Waboose says education under the Indian Act has failed remote First Nation communities.
