Dakota Midday: Mato Standing High


The South Dakota Native American Student Achievement Advisory Council recently released its historic report, featuring an urgent call to close the achievement gap between Native and non-Native South Dakota students.

Mato Standing High, Indian Education Director for the state of South Dakota, joins Dakota Midday to discuss legislation that resulted from the NASAAC report, the importance of language and culture for Native students, and why all students desire to be held to high standards.
