The College of Education’s Native Education Certificate Program was featured in a Crosscut article titled “After 7 years, WA tribal history curriculum still not fully implemented.” In the article, Marjorie James, Tulalip Tribe’s curriculum and engagement manager, says she would like to see something like the UW Native Education Certificate Program implemented on a district level so that educators are being taught by leading Native education researchers. Overall, the article highlights how the state legislature has failed to allocate funding for Native education curriculum, so now the financial burden has been placed on Washington tribes and school districts.
