    There are many issues facing Native American Children which are unique to them. They are a minority minority, with staggering drop out rates and failing test scores. There are numerous statistics that show many are impoverished and have family situations which are far from ideal. While this may ring true for many minority students, Native American’s have cultural stereotypes, and prejiduces which make their learning environment sometimes feel unfamilier and unwelcoming.

    However, Jefferson County Public School is one of many districts that are working to connect with Native American children on a personal level, to provide them with a deeper sense of community and help create a safe environement for kids who may be afraid to come to class, because of a deep historical and cultural mistrust of public schools and how they interact with Native tribes.
