Native American Education Research Alliance

Description

The Native American Education Research Alliance (NAERA) supports efforts to improve academic achievement of Native American students and build capacity to develop interventions that serve Native American students. Stakeholder groups being specifically targeted for assistance include researchers, policymakers, district and school administrators, community and school board members, teachers, and parents of Native American students.

Research Questions

  • What are some practices for increasing academic achievement among Native American K–12 and postsecondary students?
  • What are some strategies in vocabulary instruction and English language acquisition for working with Native American students?
  • What are some useful data-based decision making and disaggregation strategies for policymakers and educators who work with Native American students?
  • What factors affect the achievement of Native American students living in rural and urban areas?
  • How can teachers working in isolated rural areas with large Native American populations be trained and supported in ways that promote culturally inclusive classrooms and support teacher retention?
