The report of the Manitoba Advocate for Children and Youth entitled "Finding the way Back" was released on November 4th. One of the striking figures showed the achievement gap between Indigenous and non-Indigenous youth in the proportion who graduate from high school. In Manitoba, the "on time" high school completion rate for non-Indigenous youth was 87% in 2019, while for Indigenous youth in Manitoba it was 48%. This rate for Indigenous youth has not changed since 2013. Improving the on time graduation rate for Indigenous youth needs to be a major focus of our efforts to get improved overall results from education in Manitoba.
