Native American Education Bill Moves to House Floor
A bill that gives teachers more money to work in regions of the state where there are a lot of Native American students is headed to the Utah House Floor. It already passed the full Senate.
In the 2015 legislative session, Utah lawmakers created a commission to spend a year studying why Utah’s Native American students are performing worse than other groups in the state. Republican Representative Jack Draxler says a major finding of that commission was schools on or near reservations have high teacher turnover rates.
