The Fort Hope education of Sarah Diamond
For the last two years, 28-year-old Sarah Diamond has worked in Eabametoong First Nation in northern Ontario. The community, also known as Fort Hope, is a one-hour plane ride into the bush from Thunder Bay.
Sarah is one of many teachers from the south, on staff at the elementary school. In fact, for decades there has been a revolving door of teachers leaving this Ojibway community.
This spring, Sarah Diamond had to decide whether she would be one of them.
That's when producer Julia Pagel went to Fort Hope.
Her documentary is called "Are You Going to Stay?"
