MSU ILPC to Host Dept. of Education School Environment Listening Tour for Native American Students — Nov. 19, 2014

The US Dept. of Education’s White House Initiative on American Indian and Alaska Native Education will be conducting a listening session on Native American students’ educational environment. They will make a stop at MSU’s Kellogg Center Auditorium on Wednesday, November 19, 2014. Events begin at 1 PM and run until 6 PM (TIME CHANGE).

The listening sessions are focusing on school environment issues — bullying, student discipline and offensive imagery and symbolism. The White House Initiative on American Indian and Alaska Native Education is gathering feedback during the tour and will consider how it can inform future action to ensure Native American students receive a high quality education.
