On-reserve education programs include Day Care, Head Start and Kindergarten to grade 12.  Despite a growing number of high school graduates and an increasing number of Cowessess youth attending post secondary schools, there is still a strong need to improve the Reserves academic programming.  Students from Cowessess continue to attend off-reserve schools, which leads to tension in the community and suggests a lack of confidence in the on-reserve education system.  Learning should not just be about academics, but should address culture, language, history and tradition.  There should be an emphasis on lifelong learning.  

Above all, education should be fun and positive experience for both young and old.
