Junior High Indian Children in Minneapolis: A Study of One Problem School. The National Study of American Indian Education.
Harkins, Arthur M.; And Others
This report discusses the problem of Indian children in Bryant Junior High School in Minneapolis. Some findings of the Special Subcommittee of Indian Education are of direct importance since this report seeks to find where these findings apply to one particular junior high school and where the general findings do not appear adequate for this school. The Task Force Report of 1969 is presented, followed by a plan for Bryant Junior High. The Task Force Report of 1970 is then given. Other topics and data presented include: (1) the Bryant Indian Education Survey; (2) action areas concerning Bryant Indian students; (3) a profile of Bryant Indian students; (4) the education-related values and attitudes of Indian parents; (5) action possibilities suggested by the parental questionnaire; (6) teachers and administrators at Bryant, attitudes towards Indians and personal competence; (7) some action possibilities suggested by the teacher-administrator questionnaire; (8) some overview commentary on Indian education; and (9) the Bryant data and the Senate Subcommittee findings.
