Congressman Cole Introduces Language Immersion Bill

Here, from Native News Network and NIEA.  An excerpt:

Yesterday, Chickasaw Nation citizen and U.S. Representative Tom Cole (R-OK) introduced critical legislation – The Native Language Immersion Student Achievement Act – as a companion bill to Senate Committee on Indian Affairs Chairman Jon Tester’s (D-MT) S. 1948.

NIEA President Pam Agoyo quickly applauded the action stating, “NIEA thanks Congressman Cole for his continued leadership in Native education and is excited to see companion legislation for Native language immersion introduced in the House. We are already working with Native education partners to garner support as well as congressional committees to request they act on these bills as soon as possible.”
