Abstract

WCC staff reviewed state and national law, board rules, and policy decisions related to Indian education in Arizona, Nevada, and Utah. National and state based resources were consulted to inform this effort. WCC also identified prominent organizations that are concerned with improving Indian education in each of the states. In addition, interviews were conducted with state education agency lead staff in the area of Indian education. This report represents a summary of what has been learned from these sources. A brief overview of federal laws and pertinent research is provided as background, followed by highlights from state-level reviews and interviews. The appendix contains detailed summaries of state laws, board rules, and other policy decisions that informed this effort, as well as a list of national resources.
