On November 3, OESE and the Department of Education had the honor of swearing in the new members of the Presidential appointed National Advisory Council on Indian Education (NACIE). We had a wonderful ceremony, where members were sworn in by Deputy Secretary Tony Miller, and heard a video message from the Secretary congratulating the new members. The ceremony was the kick-off event to the first public meeting for the newly appointed members.
I’m so excited to work in partnership with all of the new NACIE members. They are all extremely passionate, dedicated, and accomplished individuals, and with much to contribute to the national conversation about improving educational outcomes for all of our Indian children. Stay tuned for much more to come from this group – and the Department – and Indian education!
