Description

It is estimated that between 90 and 95 percent of all Indian students in the United States are in the public school system. That is approximately 400,000 Indian students. Yet, when we talk about Indian education, it often seems that we tend to overlook the programs affecting Indian and Alaska Native students in our public schools. Many leaders and advocates for Indian education know that a quality education system can help lift communities out of poverty and many of the symptoms associated with poverty. In the face of suicide clusters, increasing domestic violence and growing instances of self-harm and drug addition, students show up at school every day and it is our job to do the best we can for them. Improving educational opportunities can be a starting point for addressing many of the issues that are so prevalent throughout much of Indian Country. We need better approaches to realize stronger, healthier, more stable and better-educated families and communities. This means that HUD housing, USDA, Head Start and the Department of Justice must be at the table with the Indian Health Service, tribal governments and tribal colleges.show more
