Aboriginal Inquiry: Lifting All Learners

An Impact Assessment of the Aboriginal Enhancement Schools Network (AESN)

8.0 Summary of overall impacts: Sustained, initiated and emerging

In this section of the report we have sought to provide additional evidence from our interviews that illustrate the impacts the AESN is having on BC students, teachers, and districts. We have attempted to provide rich detail about how the Network operates structurally and over time in many different locations around the province to demonstrate the depth and scope of its impacts. When considering overall impact, as in our earlier discussions of the cases we created the categories of sustained, initiated and potential to help tease out the level and scope of impact. We therefore have summarized our assessment of impact into these categories.
