Edward Parisian, the new director of education for the Bureau of Indian Affairs, says he will ensure the President Bush's No Child Left Behind reforms are implemented at Indian schools.

The BIA is in the process of holding meetings to discuss the law and its mandates. Several meetings are being held with a negotiated federal-tribal rulemaking committee.

More than 50,000 students attend BIA schools.
