Audit Finds Native American Schools Poorly Equipped to Handle Violence

Indianz.Com, Posted: Aug 26, 2008

WASHINGTON, DC A federal report published in August found that Native American schools lack the most basic safety measures, reports Indianz.Com. Of nine schools visited in the report none were ready to deal with serious violence such as fights, shootings, and bomb threats. At a majority of sites, investigators entered buildings without being challenged. A report in 2000 warned that it was common for students to carry guns to native schools and engage in physical fights. Schools also lacked security fences to keep out transients who sold drugs, and more than half of the schools visited did not have central alarm systems. A study in July of 2007 also found health and safety problems in a visit to 13 schools.
