Indigenous Students Count

Up to 70% of Indigenous students in U.S. public schools are not represented in data reporting or analysis. The Indigenous Student Identification (ISI) project, a collaboration of the Indigenous Education State Leaders Network (IESLN) and the AIR Equity Initiative, has released a new report and interactive map exploring K–12 public school Indigenous student identification across the United States.

Explore the map (below), which shows several of the ways American Indian/Alaska Native (AI/AN) students are counted in the U.S. K–12 public school system and estimates student undercounts at the state and district level.
