There is no more vital resource to the continued existence and integrity of Tribal Nations than our children. Yet, Native education is in a state of emergency, as our students lag far behind their peers on every educational indicator, from academic achievement to high school and college graduation rates. Tribal Nation participation in education must be strengthened. Tribal Nations and our education agencies are in the best position to address the unique needs of Native America children. As such, Tribal Nations should have the authority and funding to manage education programs in parity with states and school districts.
