Status and Trends in the Education of American Indians and Alaska Natives: 2008

The National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) has released a report examining both the educational progress of American Indian/Alaska Native children and adults and challenges in their education. The report shows that over time more American Indian/Alaska Native students have gone on to college and that their attainment expectations have increased. Despite these gains, progress has been uneven and differences persist between American Indian/Alaska Native students and students of other racial/ethnic groups on key indicators of educational performance.
