This paper from the Civil Rights Project/Proyecto Derechos Civiles uses 2005 National Center for Educational Statistics (NCES) data to look at the dropout crisis among American Indian and Alaska Native students. The authors discuss implications of the findings for policy and practice and provide recommendations for future research including questions to consider to better understand the issue. They also call for the adoption and implementation of uniform reporting and data collection methods especially for this population.
