Every Child Left Behind: Sequester Guts Indian Education, Part 3

Cuts to federal funding for tribal colleges and universities due to the sequester mean more than fewer classes and increased teaching loads to the people charged with fulfilling the mission and promise of these schools. “Tribal colleges play a key role in tribal nation-building efforts. We strive to build tribal nations by building people. It’s not just about funding—TCUs are deeply connected to tribal communities and tribal nations. These cuts reflect on the promise of the government to partner with TCUs to provide education” to American Indians, says Northwest Indian College President Justin Guillory.
