Editorial: Reservation students find success

"There's still a long way to go, but a success story is occurring on Montana's Indian reservations.

It has to do with their schools' performance on the national No Child Left Behind testing.

Just four years ago, only nine of the reservations' 60 schools managed to pass NCLB muster — called making "adequate yearly progress."

In part because of the increased attention focused on the schools as a result of that performance, and in larger part because of hard work on the part of the schools and their faculties, the number of reservation schools making AYP this year more than doubled — to 20."
