Editorial: Indian Education for All on track in schools


"Indian education was in the news almost daily last week, because Friday was Native American Day in the schools, and September is Native American Month.

It's fitting, therefore, that the Great Falls Public Schools trustees tonight will hear a report on the district's implementation of the Indian Education for All program.

Much of last week's news coverage was upbeat � features and photos about special presentations in the schools, information highlighting GFPS's spectacular, museum-like Indian library at Longfellow Elementary, and a story about what the state has to offer to help schools implement the Indian Education for All law.

A different vein running through the news, however, had to do with actual implementation of the Indian education law, including a small controversy that erupted about it."
