School Outcomes among Elementary School-Aged Inuit Children in Inuit Nunangat
Keywords:Academic achievement, socio-ecological model, Inuit children
The objective of this study was to examine factors associated with school outcomes among elementary school-aged Inuit children in Inuit Nunangat through a socio-ecological framework. The associations among children’s school outcomes and various individual, family, and school factors were examined using the 2012 Aboriginal Peoples Survey. Logistic regression analyses suggest that an Inuk child who is healthy and not hungry, whose parents obtained a post-secondary education, who is attending a school with a climate conducive to learning and at which parents are given opportunities to be involved, and who is exposed daily to the Inuit language has better odds of succeeding at school.
