Recruiting Native American Teachers

Recruiting Native American Teachers
PIERRE, SD -

An organization that works in South Dakota to help ease teacher shortages and the achievement gap between white and native students is drawing more American Indian teachers.  

Teach for America initially served the Pine Ridge and Rosebud reservations and has expanded to include Standing Rock and Lower Brule.  

In 2004, the organization had 17 teachers, 5 percent of whom identified themselves as being native. The 2014-2015 crew includes 78 teachers, about 18 percent native.  

In 2012 and 2013 the state provided $250,000 matched, dollar for dollar, by private funds. The state did not provide funding this year, so the organization is currently targeting private contributions.
