Obama Promised Change.Was Native Education Included ?
President Obama promised change.
What type of changes have the Obama administration given to Native American Education ?
To Haskell Indian Nations University they gave Stephanie Birdwell-Bighorn.
A forty some year old with a master’s degree in social work and no experience in education or the running of any schools as far as that goes. So what to do ? Put her in charge of all federal Native schools.
Obama administration don’t worry about supporting the Presidents of Haskell and Sipi, after all they both hold doctorates and have the required experience to run those two schools.
Obama administration let Haskell’s proposed two new degrees fall by the way side. Never up the budgets for Haskell or Sipi so that you have both presidents trying to come up with enough money in the budget to actually run those two schools.
Maybe it’s time for President Obama to give the changes he has promised and turn both of those schools over to the tribes to run.
Fully run by the tribes.
It’s time for the Bureau of Indian Education not just Stephanie Birdwell-Bighorn to go. Now that would be changes President Obama.
