Tribal Council declares support of dependent public school districts


TAHLEQUAH, Okla. —The Cherokee Nation Tribal Council unanimously passed a resolution Tuesday supporting the continued operation of rural, dependent school districts in the tribe’s jurisdictional area.

Tribal Councilors say the 26 dependent school districts in the tribe’s 14 counties stabilize communities and are opposed to any proposed state measures to consolidate them into larger independent school districts.

State education cuts, and more proposals to cut school spending, have caused alarm.
