Background
Tribal leaders and Native education stakeholders have long requested that the federal government uphold its trust responsibility to Indian education. While there has been some cause for concern regarding the bureaucratic reform, the President’s summer announcement on Indian education increased momentum for ensuring tribal authority in education. The proposal to redesign the BIE under the June 12, 2014 Secretarial Order is based on recommendations from the Indian Education Study Group (Study Group), which DOI Secretary Jewell and Secretary of Education Duncan convened to diagnose the systemic issues within BIE schools.

Material for the Event
• White House Fact Sheet
• June 12, 2014 DOI Secretarial Order
• BIE Transformation Blueprint
• Indian Education Study Group Information
• NIEA/NCAI Joint Comments
• NIEA Senate Testimony on the BIE
For more information or questions, please contact Clint J. Bowers, NIEA Policy Associate, at cbowers@niea.org

Please join the Department of Education, the Department of Health and Human Services, the Department of Labor, the Corporation for National and Community Services, and the Office of Management and Budget in partnership with the White House Initiative on American Indian and Alaska Native Education for a national outreach call and dialogue on Performance Partnership Pilots (P3).
