SCIA: Examining The Needs of Early Childhood Education in Indian Country

From the Senate Committee on Indian Affairs, here.

Today the U.S. Senate Committee on Indian Affairs held an oversight hearing on the importance of Early Childhood Development and Education in Indian Country – one of the first in a series of hearings examining the critical state of education in Indian Country.

“As a former educator, I know first-hand the impacts that a quality education can have on young folks throughout their lives, and I believe that improving those opportunities can be a starting point for addressing many of the issues that are too prevalent across Indian Country,” said Committee Chairman Jon Tester (D-MT).

You can watch the hearing and see the written testimony here.  We will also put the testimony in our Resources section under Congressional Materials.
