American Indian achievement gap persists in Pendleton, statewide

 


When presenting awards to exemplary American Indian students at a school board meeting Monday at Wildhorse Resort & Casino, many Pendleton School District principals highlighted the honoree’s perfect or near-perfect attendance.

After the applause ended and the families filed out, Matt Yoshioka, the district’s curriculum, instruction and assessment coordinator, said a lack of attendance plays a large part in the persistent performance gap between Native American students and their peers.

“The achievement gap is real,” he said. “It’s alive and well.”
