American Indian parents want new approach for educating St. Paul students
January 17, 2017
Parents want St. Paul Public Schools to change its approach with American Indian students, who consistently post the district’s worst academic outcomes but often are overlooked because of their small numbers.
American Indian parent advisory committee members told the school board last week that they had passed a resolution of nonconcurrence, saying in effect that they disagree with the educational programs offered in the district.
“We’re in crisis mode. Things aren’t getting better,” said Robert Pilot, a tech ed teacher and Check and Connect mentor for American Indian students at Harding High School.
