MTCC -MT Racial Equity Project: NA, minority student success
Of the largest minority population in Montana, Native Americans, up to 36.3% live in poverty. According to Montana Office of Public Instruction only 79.6% of low income Montana students graduate from high school compared to an overall graduation rate of 86%. In Bozeman, only 50% of Native American students graduate high school. The persistence of prejudice and violence within schools negatively impacts student mental health, esteem, and academic performance. According to research, all children must feel included in school and should feel comfortable enough to have the opportunity to receive an excellent education. The Montana Racial Equity Project (MTREP) strives to achieve equity, racial justice, and positive transformational change for Montana’s historically marginalized, disenfranchised, and oppressed peoples in the personal, social, systemic, and structural arenas. MTREP and this VISTA will build racial literacy curriculum in Bozeman area schools to educate and support low income, minority students in Bozeman in completing and succeeding in school. The VISTA will also help provide educational trainings for school personnel and youth serving organizations to build a culture of support and success for low income, minority student academic achievement.
