Native American students left behind by S.D. education system


November 19, 2019

Results from state and national standardized testing shows how dire the situation has become for Native American students, who continue to perform far worse than white students in South Dakota across almost all measures of academic achievement.

During the 2018-19 school year, fewer than one in four Native American students in grades three to eight and grade 11 was rated as proficient in reading and writing on state standardized tests. Roughly one in seven Native American students was proficient in math, and just one in eight was proficient in science.
