AMERICAN INDIANS AND EDUCATIONAL LABORATORIES.
BASS, WILLARD P.; BURGER, HENRY G.
MANY OF THE DIVERSE EDUCATIONAL PROBLEMS OF THE AMERICAN INDIAN HAVE BEEN IDENTIFIED FOR YEARS, BUT HAVE BEEN PERMITTED TO LAY DORMANT. SOCIO-ECONOMIC DISADVANTAGEMENT IS EXHIBITED IN AREAS OF INCOME, UNEMPLOYMENT, SCHOOL DROPOUT RATE, EXPECTED LIFE SPAN, INFANT MORTALITY RATE, BIRTH RATE, AND HEALTH HISTORY. COMMUNICATION PROBLEMS BLOCK THE TEACHING-LEARNING EFFORT. THE SOCIAL SCIENTISTS' INTEREST IN ACCULTURATING THE INDIAN INTO THE AMERICAN NORM IS SEEN AS BEING FOCUSED UPON THE CHILDREN - THOSE WHO CAN LEAST RESIST IT. EFFORTS BY FIVE REGIONAL EDUCATIONAL LABORATORIES ARE DIRECTED TOWARD SOLVING SOME OF THE IDENTIFIED PROBLEMS. NEEDS REMAINING TO BE MET INCLUDE TECHNOLOGICAL DEVELOPMENT, COMPENSATORY INNOVATION, SUBJECT COVERAGE, CROSS-CULTURAL SENSITIVITY FOR TEACHERS, INFORMATION CARRY-OVER, EVALUATION, SEPARATING EDUCATION FROM ETHNOCENTRISM, AND CORRELATING SCHOOL AND HOME LIFE. SINGLE FREE COPIES OF THIS DOCUMENT ARE AVAILABLE FROM SOUTHWESTERN COOPERATIVE EDUCATIONAL LABORATORY, INC., 117 RICHMOND DRIVE, N.E., ALBUQUERQUE, NEW MEXICO 87106. (SF)
