  • Policy Brief: Closing the Education Gap for Indigenous Peoples by Adriene Lane, M.Ed.

    “Indigenous Peoples have less access to quality primary and secondary education than other groups, due to the lack of education that respects their cultures and languages. Minority languages, which are spoken by Indigenous Peoples, are often not used for official purposes, including in education. Students whose home languages differ from those taught at school have lower test results and reading scores. Early mother tongue education improves students' performance in their second language and other subjects, and is more cost-effective than second language instruction.” - Adriene Lane.
