From the Nunavut Government website, Department of Education:
Our vision is to have more well-educated and self-reliant Nunavummiut. We aim for our high school graduation rates to be on par with the rest of Canada and for the majority of Nunavut youth to graduate from high school, college or university, and with the same level of skills, knowledge and abilities as graduates from anywhere in Canada.
We foresee more Nunavummiut employed as skilled professionals and tradespersons working in the public sector, the mining and fishing industry and the smaller business sectors such as the arts and tourism here in Nunavut.
We want to have more bilingual Inuktut speaking teachers who will help increase bilingualism in our students. Bilingual education contributes to the preservation, use and promotion of Inuktut and helps to ensure that Nunavummiut can be served in all our official languages.
We have been mandated by the Honourable Paul Quassa Minister of Education to create a healthy, strong, and flourishing Nunavut. Education is the key to that success. We are committed to taking actions that will lead to real and visible progress for Nunavummiut by providing quality education and training opportunities. Our goal is the development of self-reliance and we are working to provide a vibrant learning environment that encourages academic success, guided by Inuit cultures and values.
The JWs are entering into the local educational systems of Northern Canadian communities under the guise of increasing bilingualism. What the Northen communities don't realize is that the aims of the WTS are completely contrary to the mandate of the Nunavut educational system. The JWs present themselves as an "educational" institution yet I would doubt that the communities are aware of the anti-education stance that is encouraged by the WTS.
Contact page for the Nunavut government for anyone who would like to voice their concerns about this critical issue:
Maybe a letter writing campaign, including a link to the JW published article, and supporting evidence that the WTS is against any education outside of their "Bible education", could be valuable.
