AURBACH, HERBERT A.
A CONFERENCE WAS HELD FOR THE PURPOSE OF ESTABLISHING GUIDELINES FOR A STATUS SURVEY AND RESEARCH PROJECT IN AMERICAN INDIAN EDUCATION. THREE BACKGROUND PAPERS WERE PRESENTED WHICH PROVIDED AN HISTORICAL REVIEW OF PREVIOUS RESEARCH IN INDIAN EDUCATION, ANALYZED CURRENT RESEARCH, AND CONSIDERED CURRENT ACTION PROGRAMS. PANELISTS DISCUSSED THE KINDS OF RESEARCH NEEDED AND CONFERENCE PARTICIPANTS MADE THE FOLLOWING RECOMMENDATIONS--(1) A NATIONAL RESEARCH PROJECT ON INDIAN EDUCATION IS NEEDED IN WHICH INDIAN LEADERSHIP WOULD BE A PREREQUISITE, (2) SUCH A RESEARCH PROJECT SHOULD BE MULTI-DISCIPLINARY IN ITS APPROACH, (3) INDISCRIMINATE INTELLIGENCE AND PSYCHOLOGICAL TESTING OF INDIAN CHILDREN SHOULD BE AVOIDED, (4) EVALUATION AND SAMPLING PROCEDURES SHOULD PROVIDE FOR IN-DEPTH STUDY AND AN ADEQUATE CROSS-SECTION OF INDIAN CHILDREN, (5) THE OVERALL PLANNING, DIRECTION, AND COORDINATION SHOULD BE LOCATED IN A SINGLE RESEARCH ORGANIZATION, (6) INDIAN RESEARCHERS SHOULD BE TRAINED AND USED IN THE OPERATIONS OF THE RESEARCH PROJECT, AND (7) RESEARCH RESULTS SHOULD BE MADE AVAILABLE TO THE INDIAN LEADERSHIP IN ORDER TO DEVELOP EDUCATIONAL POLICIES AND ESTABLISH EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMS.
