OWENS, CHARLES S.
DURING THE PAST 15 YEARS THE AVERAGE ENROLLMENT AND DAILY ATTENDANCE FIGURES FOR NEW MEXICO INDIAN CHILDREN IN THE JOHNSON-O'MALLEY PROGRAM HAVE INCREASED. THIS INCREASE INDICATES PROGRESS BY THE INDIAN CHILDREN IN THE MASTERY OF LANGUAGE, WHICH HAS BEEN ENCOURAGED BY THE DIVISION OF INDIAN EDUCATION OF THE NEW MEXICO STATE DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION. INDIAN CHILDREN HAVE BENEFITED FROM THE USE OF JOHNSON-O'MALLEY FUNDS BY AN INCREASE IN EARLY CHILDHOOD EDUCATION, GUIDANCE AND COUNSELING SERVICES, HEALTH SERVICES, TRANSPORTATION, TEXTBOOKS AND SCHOOL SUPPLIES, AND LUNCH PROGRAMS. THE GUIDANCE SECTION OF THE DIVISION OF INDIAN EDUCATION HAS HAD THREE PRIMARY OBJECTIVES--(1) ENCOURAGE SELF-MOTIVATION AND SELF-DIRECTION OF INDIAN PUPILS, THEIR PARENTS, AND THEIR TEACHERS, (2) SECURE MORE PARENTAL INVOLVEMENT IN EDUCATION AND CITIZENSHIP RESPONSIBILITIES, AND (3) EMPHASIZE CULTURAL SIMILARITIES OF ALL PUPILS AS A NEW DIRECTION WITHIN THE TOTAL EDUCATIONAL SITUATION, WHILE LEARNING ABOUT GROUP AND INDIVIDUAL DIFFERENCES. IN ORDER TO ACHIEVE THESE OBJECTIVES, THE GUIDANCE OFFICE BECAME INVOLVED IN VARIOUS WORKSHOPS, CONFERENCES, AND MEETINGS, INITIATED TWO RESEARCH PROJECTS PERTAINING TO SCHOOL DROPOUTS ON THE SECONDARY LEVEL, AND CONDUCTED A SURVEY INVOLVING INDIAN STUDENTS IN HIGHER EDUCATION. THE TOTAL NUMBERS OF INDIAN CHILDREN IN THE JOHNSON-O'MALLEY PROGRAM FOR NEW MEXICO ARE INCLUDED IN TABULAR FORM. (ES)
