SURVEY REPORT--NAVAJO COMMUNITY COLLEGE.
ASHE, ROBERT W.
THIS PLAN FOR THE ESTABLISHMENT OF A NAVAJO JUNIOR COLLEGE GOES INTO ALL ASPECTS OF ITS ORGANIZATION. IT DESCRIBES THE PRESENT NAVAJO SCHOOL SYSTEM, WHICH IS A COMBINATION OF MISSION, PUBLIC, AND BUREAU OF INDIAN AFFAIRS OPERATIONS. FINANCIAL HELP TO STUDENTS WANTING MORE THAN A HIGH SCHOOL EDUCATION IS PRESENTLY INADEQUATE, THROUGH INCREASING. IF THERE WERE A COLLEGE ON THE RESERVATION, MANY MORE STUDENTS COULD BENEFIT FROM THIS AID AS WELL AS FROM THE PROXIMITY OF THE INSTITUTION. THE LESS ABLE, WHO ARE EXPECTED TO REQUIRE ONLY SHORT-TERM VOCATIONAL COURSES, WOULD BENEFIT THE MOST. BESIDES THE GENERALLY ACCEPTED GOALS OF A JUNIOR COLLEGE, THIS ONE MUST ALSO CONSIDER THE SPECIFIC NEEDS OF THE NAVAJO PEOPLE. FOR THIS REASON, THE IMPORTANCE OF THE GUIDANCE PROGRAM IS EMPHASIZED, AS IT MUST HARMONIZE THE NAVAJO NATIONAL CULTURE AND THE DOMINANT CULTURE OF THE "OUTSIDE WORLD." PROGRAMS IN AGRICULTURE, AT ALL LEVELS OF COMPLEXITY AND SKILL, WOULD BE OF IMMEDIATE BENEFIT TO THE WHOLE NAVAJO COMMUNITY. THE PLAN DETAILS THE STAFF NEEDS, THE OVERALL PROGRAM REQUIREMENTS, RECOMMENDIONS FOR THE PHYSICAL PLANT, A THE DIFFERING LEGAL AND FINANCIAL CONSIDERATIONS IN ARIZONA AND NEW MEXICO. APPENDIXES CONTAIN PRECISE OUTLINES FOR THE ESSENTICURRICULU CURRICULUMS, AS WELL AS SAMPLES OF THE QUESTIONNAIRES SENT TO NAVAJO COLLEGE STUDENTS, HIGH SCHOOL GRADUATES, AND PARENTS OF HIGH SCHOOL GRADUATES.
