What is a Culture based education and why do we need it? Perhaps most simply put, culture refers to shared ways of being, knowing, and doing. Culture based education is the grounding of instruction and student learning in these ways, including the values, norms, knowledge, beliefs, practices, experiences, and language that are the foundation of an indigenous culture. By incorporating some of these aspects into the education of our children allows them to see themselves positively involved in the development of this world. If we can see ourselves in the history books, reflected back positively, it has a direct impact on our sense of self, sense of worth and a sense of what we can achieve.
Tune in to this episode of TPLC Educational Talkshow were we discuss this topic and others that impact the education of our children.
