Federation Of Saskatchewan Indian Nations Calls Harper Gov'ts Education Spending Claims 'Fairy Tales'
“The government’s numbers are, in fact, fairy tales,” said FSIN Vice-Chief Simon Bird. Bird invited Duncan to come to Saskatchewan and point to a single reserve school which receives more funds than the provincial system. Duncan recently held a news conference to say reserve schools actually receive more funding per student than those in the provincial system.
Duncan’s claim is in direct contrast to a host of organizations and officials, including a parliamentary committee, the auditor-general, the parliamentary budget office, the Saskatchewan government, various education commissions and others."
