Nunavik reader received substandard education

“It would have really helped if my school transcripts were valid”


I would like to say that I graduated from school in Nunavik in 1999, but yet my schooling was not good enough for the South and I’m still learning all the things that I was supposed to know.

It’s maddening how we have to start from scratch when you get to the South to find an job or get more schooling.

My graduation does not mean anything to the South. It’s really frustrating.

Because of my determination to get the experience that I need to work in Montreal and learn another language, it would have really helped if my school transcripts were valid.  Thanks and please withhold my name.
