Community Background Reports: The Mississippi Choctaws and Their Educational Program. National Study of American Indian Education, Series I, No. 21, Final Report.
Peterson, John H., Jr.; Richburg, James R.
General research by an anthropologist and experiences of an educator during a 2-year period form the basis for this report on education of Mississippi Choctaw Indians. A discussion of the physical and cultural environment of the Mississippi Choctaw is followed by a description of the organization, facilities, personnel, and programs of Choctaw schools. Significant trends emerging in Choctaw education include a greater degree of self-determination by Choctaws, more community participation in educational decision-making, and a greater emphasis on Indianization in curriculum and in educational programs.
