Support Efforts to Help Native Students Succeed

The Every Student Succeeds Act will benefit all children in our state, and especially Native children who need our help the most.

The bill includes measures designed to emphasize the teaching of Native languages, address serious public health issues facing Native populations, and help Tribal communities secure funds faster and close the education gap.

In New Mexico, we have the third highest percentage of Native Americans in the country. And while the overall U.S. high school graduation rate reached a record high in 2014, the graduation rate for Native students remained flat.

Every Student Succeeds is a step in the right direction. With its Native Student provisions, it aims to improve opportunities for future generations of all New Mexicans.

Add your name to mine and support continuing to help Native students succeed.
