Tribal officials lukewarm to plan to use federal funds for school vouchers

 


Tribal leaders were noncommittal Friday about a proposal that would divert Bureau of Indian Education funds into education savings accounts that individual Native American children could use to attend schools of their choosing.

Sen. John McCain, R-Arizona, said he introduced the Native American Education Opportunity Act because BIE schools have “absolutely failed” students, contributing to high unemployment and substance abuse – issues that have “plagued the Native American population.”
