Officials assess issues some Native American students face

NATIVE NEWS TODAY - October 7, 2016 - 12:53pm

DEVILS LAKE, N.D. (AP) – The challenges facing Native American students and parents when it comes to education are well documented. According to U.S. News and World Report, 67 percent of Native American students graduated high school in the 2014-15 term, compared to the national average, which was 80 percent.The Devils Lake Journal reported that there are, of course, multiple reasons for the discrepancy, not the least of which is poverty and the dark history of relations between white settlers and Native Americans. Broken treaties, boarding schools and the fallout from failed programs over the years, among many other factors, have led to the current situation here and around the country.Dr. Jared Schlenker, Central Middle School principal and director of the Native American Education Advisory Committee (NAEAC), said that the organization works to address some of the issues students face.“We have a survey that we do every fall, (which is) a needs assessment to ask parents what areas students are struggling in or are doing well (in),” Schlenker said
