Counting Down to NIEA!

Check out Dr. Bowman’s session to take place Wednesday, October 5, 2016 at NIEA, Pre-Convention!

Utilizing a Tri-Lateral Model Approach to Revitalize Tribal Education Systems

Dr. Nicole Bowman, Bowman Performance Consulting and Dr. Martin Reinhardt, Northern Michigan University

Description:  Western approaches to tribal and public education policy and programming results in gaps in services, poor resource allocation, inappropriate programming, and chronic education system failure, resulting in unmet American Indian (AI) education needs. This pre-convention workshop introduces a tri-lateral educational model that tribal governments can use to build their own model for Indian education. Using data and lessons learned from previous tri-lateral studies, participants will consider key components of a tri-lateral model, an overview of studies with key findings, and discussion/work time to process how the tri-lateral model may help them study their own educational ordinances, policies, and practices to build capacities and systems of support for Indian education in their own community.   Building stronger tribal/public government systems of support for achieving the vision of developing a true tri-lateral (tribal, federal, state) responsibility to improve the educational success of American Indian students is possible.  Attend this pre-convention workshop and be prepared to learn from one another and share ideas, resources, and practical strategies for a better tomorrow.

Time: 9 – 4:30pm PST (7.5 hours)
Room: Carson 4
