Dear Thomas:

Having just taken the Aboriginal Studies X component course IV high school through the highly esteemed St. Albert Outreach Protestant High School, I can truly say what a great people these folks are. I didn't just see the course, I lived it by talking to members of the Red Earth Society in NE Edmonton & then having a chat with band officials at the Enoch Casino just west of Edmonton on their reserve. It breaks my heart to see as a columnist states today in the paper that 43.7% of aboriginal students hold no form of paper, not even a high school diploma, much less a post-secondary certificate/diploma/degree designation of any kind. Thomas, thats just an appalling figure.

We Need II Change That,
