State of Native Education Report

The Education Trust recently published its State of Native Education Report.  Another sobering report indicating that native students are generally not closing achievement gaps, and in fact are being surpassed by other minorities.

A quote:

Unlike achievement results for every other major ethnic group in the United States, those for Native students have remained nearly flat in recent years, and the gaps separating these students from their white peers have actually widened. Indeed, while Native students performed above black and Latino students in both fourth-grade reading and eighth-grade math in 2005, by 2011, that lead had all but disappeared.
