INDIAN INTEGRATION IN NEVADA PUBLIC SCHOOLS.
HAGLUND, E.A.
THIS DOCUMENT DISCUSSES THE PROBLEM OF DESEGREGATION IN THE NEVADA PUBLIC SCHOOLS. HISTORICALLY, THE INDIAN WAS NOT ABLE TO PARTICIPATE IN THE ENCROACHING CULTURE OF THE WHITE MAN AND LITTLE ATTEMPT WAS MADE TO ENCULTURATE HIM. HE BECAME AN OBJECT OF SUBJUGATION AND EXPLOITATION. AS LATE AS 1930, THE INDIAN DID NOT HAVE THE CAPACITY OR THE NEED TO BE EDUCATED WITH WHITE CHILDREN, WHICH JUSTIFIED SEGREGATED SCHOOLS. THE AUTHOR POINTS OUT THAT IT IS NOW REALIZED ALL PEOPLE HAVE EQUAL, INNATE EDUCATIONAL POTENTIAL. THUS, IN THE 1940'S, NEVADA BEGAN A PROGRAM TO INTEGRATE THE INDIAN CHILDREN INTO THE PUBLIC SCHOOLS. TODAY, ONLY ONE STATE-SUPPORTED INDIAN SCHOOL REMAINS, WHICH SERVES THE SPECIAL EDUCATIONAL NEEDS OF INDIANS FROM A FIVE-STATE AREA. (JM)
