The Senate Indian Affairs Committee held an oversight on early childhood education in Indian Country this afternoon.

The hearing was the first to be chaired by Sen. Jon Tester (D-Montana). As a former teacher, he said he plans to make education a priority during his tenure.

The committee heard from two panels that included a federal official, tribal representatives and a researcher. Audio can be found on the Indianz.Com SoundCloud.
