Though this question often applies most often to Canada or Australia and to past residential schools as often as present residential schools, the general information is roughly the same for each place and situation.

Historically, it has been proven through data records that the health of indigenous peoples has suffered in government imposed residential schools, often because of concentrated exposure to infectious diseases like tuberculosis.
