Bill Introduced to Reform the Bureau of Indian Education


WASHINGTON — U.S. Senator John Barrasso (R-WY), chairman of the Senate Committee on Indian Affairs, introduced S. 2580, the Reforming American Indian Standards of Education Act (RAISE Act).

The RAISE Act would modernize and streamline the Bureau of Indian Education (BIE) into an independent agency under the Department of the Interior. Having a separate agency will create better accountability and transparency at the BIE, and enable it to better meet the needs of Indian students across the country.
