Monday, November 29, 2021

A survey in 2019 backed by the National Congress of American Indians concluded that the lack of access to adequate funding, equitable curricula, and professional development hinders suitable Native American lessons in schools.

The good news is many states since then have recognized those barriers and are making strides to introduce Native-led curricula into schools.

The state of Minnesota, for instance, is committing an extra $1.3 million for recruiting and training Native teachers, bringing in more input from Native educators and connecting better with Native students.
