Board reverses decision made during last meeting
This fall, Inuktitut will be a mandatory course for Grade 10 students at Iqaluit’s Inuksuk High School.
The Iqaluit District Education Authority made the decision on Monday night, at the request of the high school’s outgoing principal, Jay Thomas.
The move reverses an earlier decision made during the DEA’s last meeting on May 13 to not implement mandatory Inuktitut courses in Grade 10.
Thomas, who was not present at the May 13 meeting, proposed the idea of having mandatory Inuktitut courses at the Grade 10 level in his report to the DEA on April 29.
