Fort Duchesne, UT – In past generations, less than half of Utah's Ute Indian population graduated from high school. The situation is looking somewhat better today, thanks to the pressure put on public schools by school accountability laws such as No Child Left Behind. Efforts by the Ute tribe itself are also making a substantial difference, including their own high school in Fort Duchesne. KUER's Dan Bammes reports.
