  • Description

This fact sheet offers a chart comparing Indian education law in two major pieces of legislation, both of which are iterations of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965. The chart reveals that the Indian Title in the Every Student Succeeds Act differs from No Child Left Behind in a number of ways: the allocation of formula grants for cooperative agreements between school districts and tribes, stronger language around state tribal partnerships, greater tribal representation through local consultation, and the establishment of a Native language immersion grant program.
