Michener, Bryan P.
As a part of the Final Report of the National Study of American Indian Education, this document presents the findings of the study team from the University of Colorado who spent a month at the Shonto Boarding School in 1969. Additional information was collected during brief visits and during a 1-week stay by the team leader who was at the reservation to share some of the preliminary findings with the personnel at the school. The history, geography, economy, and attitudes of the community are described as they relate to the boarding school. The structure of the school, staffing pattern, and selection procedures of local school board members are included, as are the Navajo educational goals and facts relating to curriculum of the school.
