About the Book

This is the history of the Northern School Resource Alliance and its predecessor co-operatives in Northwestern Ontario. The book details the challenges faced by small schools in remote parts of the region and the need for a creative solution to ensure that schoolchildren have the same opportunities as those in larger urban centers.

The book details the collaborative work of English, French and First Nation schools and boards. Through collaboration, co-operation and the use of technology, high-quality education is provided for the children of small remote schools.
