The Bureau of Indian Affairs has dropped plans to privatize the worst-performing Indian schools.

Congressional appropriators refused to allow any money in the BIA's fiscal year 2003 budget to be used for a pilot project. Assistant Secretary Neal McCaleb wanted to spend nearly $12 million to help identify and move the proposal forward.
