Open up the Imagination: Questions for the Aboriginal focus school

So, you are aware how excited I am about the idea of the Aboriginal- focus school in Vancouver and in the potential in the school up in Prince George.  You've read my various posts about the schools and the accompanying documents.  You've, no doubt, debated, with colleagues, the pros and cons of a focus school and done some soul searching on the subject of Aboriginal Education.

So, I ask you.  What should it look like?  What will make an Aboriginal focus school as successful as it can be?  What should it have?  What should it not have?  Who should teach?  What should the classes look like?  What should the curriculum look like?

How do we find the balance needed in the medicine wheel idea to create the best possible circumstance for our students to acheive success?  How do we make it work?  Open up the imagination a little and start thinking about it.

I would love to hear your thoughts.
