Use of indigenous student grants leaves Alberta parent 'outraged'


A parent in the Sturgeon School Division is raising questions about how grants that follow indigenous students are being spent by the school board.

John Coffin has two children with Cree heritage in the division north of Edmonton, but he doesn't believe the extra money the school board receives for them is being spent in the right spirit.

"Right now the money is simply given to the independent schools to do as they want and they can use that money for floor wax or door knobs," said Coffin.
