Linguistics Faculty Involved in Cree Language and Education Initiative
Marguerite MacKenzie and Julie Brittain have been invited to join a committee which will, over the coming months, be working toward producing a written report overviewing the Cree Nation of Quebec's Cree-medium education program (Cree as a Language of Instruction Program: CLIP). The Cree School Board has nine schools, one in each of the Cree communities in northern Quebec. CLIP offers Cree-medium education to children up to Grade 3 (or Grade 2, depending on the community). The committee had its initial planning meeting in Montreal April 15th. The review is being conducted on behalf of the Cree community.
