Teaching material

The availability of teaching material for the Sami language is bad, the quality of the available material is considered 'reasonable'.

Remarks

The main problems at the moment are a lack of qualified teachers, a lack of sufficient learning materials in the Sami-language, and the dominant position of Finnish in the homes and daily life. One possible solution for these problems would be a more active attitude in the homes towards the minority language, according to the school.
