American Indian/Alaska Native Achievement Gap
Educational achievement is a pressing issue today for American Indian/Alaska Native (AI/AN) students. National and state assessment results show that AI/AN youth underperform compared to their peers in other groups. Across the board, AI/AN students graduate from high school at a lower rate and drop out of school at a higher rate. The animation and resources in this section discuss in detail the AI/AN achievement gap.
