Leadership is all around us. Host Mark Furnari speaks with Jeff Binay, the long standing Director of Indian Education for Franklin County Public Schools which serves approximately 620 Abenaki students, K-12. The Indian Education program is a comprehensive initiative which supports Abenaki students through a myriad of services ranging from in-school programs to after-school cultural endeavors. The program is guided by the belief in self determination for Abenaki parents reflected in a very active Parent Advisory Committee (PAC) comprised of sixteen Abenaki parents, elders, students, and teachers, which oversees all educational and cultural supports for Abenaki children enrolled in area public schools.
