     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Bond has been set at $5,000 cash for a Bismarck woman accused of passing out from drug use while in the care of her two young children.   Thirty-year-old Tesha Brehm could face up to 16 years in prison if convicted on all of the charges against her, including felony child neglect and drug possession. Court documents do not list an attorney for her.
 
     Authorities say Brehm was found unconscious in her home on Friday, with drugs and drug paraphernalia within easy reach of her 4- and 6-year-old children. Police say the children ran to a neighbor's home to report that their mother was lying on the floor and not moving.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota School Superintendent Kirsten Baesler wants American Indian culture taught in the state's classrooms.   Baesler says she wants to establish curriculum similar to Montana's "Indian Education for All" program that mandates Montana schools teach all students about its American Indian tribes and reservations.
 
     Baesler and Montana Superintendent of Public Instruction Denise Juneau attended an Indian Education Summit today in Bismarck.   Juneau is a member of the North Dakota's Three Affiliated Tribes. She also is a former teacher on the Fort Berthold Indian Reservation in North Dakota.
 
     Baesler and Juneau say the idea of the program is to integrate Indian education into existing curriculums such as math, reading, music, history and other subjects.   Juneau says the program "is not Indian education for Indians - it's Indian education for all."
