How school staff try to coax Natuashish kids back to class
By Bailey White, CBC News
“Experts say students can’t keep up with the rest of the province; principal says the gap is closing.
Derrick Fewer, the principal at the Mushuau Innu Natuashish School, starts each day standing at the building’s front door, greeting students and ushering them in.
Classes technically start at 9 a.m., but Fewer knows he has to be patient. Some of the older kids in the remote First Nation reserve of Natuashish, N.L., have to babysit siblings while their parents work out of town, so some are going to be late.
Others may sleep in, so Fewer has to make some calls.”
