Barely Two R's Are Taught at School That Led Tribe to Sue U.S.
January 24, 2017
SUPAI, Ariz. — Students at Havasupai Elementary, the only school in this tribal village near Grand Canyon National Park, say they don’t have a regular schedule of science and social studies classes, or gym or art classes, either. Often there are not enough teachers, they say.
The children — in kindergarten through eighth grade — learn mostly reading and math, though barely. In the most recent evaluation made public, they tested at the first and third percentile, well below every other school on Indian reservations, already among the worst in the country.
