AMERICAN INDIAN EDUCATION

CONTACT :: Debora Williams

MISSION

The mission of the State Advisory Council on Indian Education is to create a system that engages state policy leaders, public school personnel, parents, tribal leaders and communities in providing educational experiences and cultural opportunities that promote high expectations and accountability for the academic achievement of American Indian students, thus preparing students for success in a globally competitive environment.


VISION

Every American Indian student in North Carolina will graduate from academically rigorous and culturally relevant high schools as well-prepared lifelong learners globally competitive for work and postsecondary education.


RESEARCH STUDY

Recent evidence provided by the State Advisory Council on Indian Education in their 2013 annual report (pdf, 6.2mb) demonstrates that American Indian students have considerably lower proficiency rates in all tested subjects and at all levels than White students.

Given these findings and supported by the State Board of Education, SACIE has called for a study that provided further investigation into the schooling experience of American Indian students.
