Education director named to help Anishinabek Education System

The Grand Council Chief likes the selection of who becomes the education director for the new Anishinabek Education System.  Pat Madahbee says Kelly Crawford is an excellent choice to oversee JK to Grade 12 courses taught by First Nations who opted into the program.  Crawford has written several books and has an education background.  She’s originally from the M’Chigeeng First Nation on Manitoulin Island.  Among Crawford’s responsibilities are providing vision and leadership for the newly instituted education system.

Madahbee says Crawford is the right person to do this and along the way she’ll help Indigenous communities fulfill their dream of having education fall under the authority of First Nations.  In addition to vision and leadership, Crawford will oversee the operations and delivery of the Anishinabek Education System.  She’ll be responsible for implementing policy and providing coordination of the new program.  Before being appointed, Crawford oversaw Kindergarten to Grade 12 at the Kenjgewin Teg Educational Institute in M’Chigeeng and she’s also a faculty liaison with Queen’s University.  Among Crawford’s books are “We are all Treaty People”.  She has also a couple of new books that will launch in early November.   Crawford assumes her new role as education director of the AES at the end of November.
