How federal and state laws can support relevant and engaging schooling for Native Americans will be one of the topics of a Web chat scheduled today for 3 p.m., Eastern time.
Keith O. Moore, who just started a new job as the director of the U.S. Department of Interior’s Bureau of Indian Education, will be a guest for the chat. So will Leslie Harper, who directs an Ojibwe language-immersion school in Minnesota. Moore is a member of the Rosebud Sioux Tribe in South Dakota. Harper is a member of the Leech Lake Band of Ojibwe.
Anyone will be able to submit questions for the chat shortly before it starts. A transcript will be available afterward. I’ll be the moderator.
