Now more than ever, we must come together to build education nations and communities that can provide the high-quality education our Native students need to be future leaders. It is critical that we keep more of our children on the path to college and career success, secure resources for reforming Native education from sequestration-triggered budget cuts, and leverage new approaches to building brighter futures.
Fulfilling these goals is at the heart of NIEA's 2013 Policy Agenda. From expanding Native choice and control over education as part of reauthorizing the No Child Left Behind Act/Elementary and Secondary Education Act, to working with partners on the state level to secure much-needed data on the conditions of education, the leading advocate for all Native students is pressing ahead to advance excellent academic and cultural education.
NIEA outlines its agenda in the
2013 Advocacy Brief. You can also learn more about the
constitutional framework for the organization's policy positions and that of our Native communities, as well as the
priorities for reauthorization of No Child/ESEA.
Further data on the condition of education for American Indian, Alaska Native, and Native Hawaiian students is available on
