Thanks to feds, Native Americans suffer through the worst schools in the country


There are about 644,000 Native American students in the country, and they suffer some of the nation's worst schools. Four in ten won't graduate from high school and only one in five are proficient in math. Native American students lag far behind their peers in the traditional public schools.

The sad state of Native American education is chronicled in a 10-minute mini-documentary released Monday by the pro-school choice group American Federation for Children, entitled "America's Underdogs: Students in Crisis."
