WASHINGTON (NEXSTAR) — Former teachers at Chemawa Indian School in Salem, Oregon accuse the school of failing to keep students safe. 

Educators and parents testified before Congress this week on allegations against the Native American boarding school. 

Oregon Rep. Suzanne Bonamici expressed alarm over how the Bureau of Indian Affairs is handling the allegations. 

“They say they have the best interest of the students in mind,” Bonamici said. “But what we have seen and heard not just in the hearing but over the last several years, has not indicated that.”
