ND colleges receive grants to educate more Native American teachers

BISMARCK — The University of Mary, Turtle Mountain Community College and Sitting Bull College were awarded federal grants this week to help more Native Americans pursue careers as teachers and administrators in high-need, reservation schools.

To combat teacher shortages and high turnover rates seen on many reservations in North Dakota and across the country, some colleges have turned to educating tribal members to become teachers and administrators at their own schools or other reservations.
