Oklahoma Awarded Grants

Education programs in seven states – Arizona, Minnesota, Montana, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Oregon and South Dakota – have been selected to receive nearly $3.8 million to provide training programs to recruit and graduate new American Indian teachers and school administrators, U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan announced today.

“These professional development grants will help us find, train and retain the very best teachers and administrators within American Indian communities,” said Duncan. “These grants represent opportunity, both for teachers and their students.”

The grant award is part of the Office of Indian Education’s Professional Development program, which trains qualified individuals to become teachers and administrators in Indian communities.

More information about Indian education is available from the Office of Indian Education.
