    I would encourage you to include graduate studies and adult education in your proposal as well.

    I fully support empowering native youth with the important incentive to continue their education. The examples provided throughout this report on why some recieve education support and many others don't are all true. I've posted about this study on my facebook and have heard nothing but positive feedback, and some are posting their dream that our young ones can go on to become doctors or engineers. In a broken system where each is fighting for scarce resources, this idea instills hope that we can eliminate poverty. Education is key. Fighting to maintain an Indian Act system is madness.
