Get the facts about the proposed Polytechnic College

Why did the degree programs fail? Why has enrolment been dropping for the past two decades? What is the link to low graduation rates in the community schools and high absenteeism. How has this prevented Dene, Metis and Inuvialuit people from being qualified for jobs in their government. I look into all these questions here – Education in the NWT . Please check it out.
