Navaho Education at Rough Rock.
Johnson, Broderick H.
The Rough Rock Demonstration School as established in Arizona in 1966 is an experiment in Navajo education. Characteristic of the program is a high level of parental and total community involvement. The school board is composed entirely of Navajos who have had very little formal education. Instruction in both the Navaho and English languages is provided. Preservation of the Navajo culture is emphasized through training in arts and crafts characteristic of the Navajo people. Decisions and activities of the first six months' operations are included along with official policies of the school. (JH)
