TORONTO - There is the poverty, the high cost of food, lack of clean water and acceptable housing, the lack of concern for the people’s wellbeing, the high rate of disease and of course the whole situation around the school. Nobody has the silver bullet that will fix education in Attiwapiskat in northern Ontario.

As a Toronto Catholic District School Board teacher, I’ve been working with Attawapiskat for 10 years.

The challenge at his school was and still is raising the literacy skills.
