Why do think is behind the high drop out rate of Native Americans from high schools?
Their rate of drop out exceeds that of any other sector of our population? Can you explain it?
Maybe because they are a highly spiritual people.. meaning they are right brainers.. which is in conflict to the school system.. which is logical, structured or left brained.
I know a few students that were expelled due to conflicts with the faculty. Disrespect or abuse of authority shouldn't be allowed by adults. This was a major reason for the students here that are now in alternative education programs.
I blame part of our low graduation rate on the ineptitude of the system and history of abuse inherent in the mission boarding school system.
