Indian Education Legal Support Project, "Tribalizing Indian Education." Compilation of State Indian Education Laws.
McCoy, Melody L.; Thompson, Melissa K.
The Native American Rights Fund seeks to "tribalize" formal education through developing tribal education laws and reforming state and national Indian education legislation. The Indian Education Legal Support Project advances Native American rights in education by emphasizing the legal rights of tribes to control the formal education of tribal members in all types of schools: federal, state, and tribal. This document contains the following materials for use in educational assessment and planning: an alphabetical list of the 36 states that have Indian education laws; and an alphabetical list by subject matter, with state-by-state excerpts of the relevant laws. Subject categories (with the number of states that address that category) include: (1) cooperative agreements with tribes, 8; (2) curricula and programs, 12; (3) education-related committees, 17; (4) finance and funding, 16; (5) scholarships/grants/tuition and recruitment programs, 22; (6) staffing and personnel, 7; and (7) other, including collection and reporting of statistical data, and secondary school minority career counseling, 3.
