The Indian Student, Parent and Family--A Summary of Montana Educational Programs.
Fitzpatrick, James W.
The report concerns programs conducted by Montana counselors and educators in their efforts to better meet the needs of the Indian student, parent, and their families. The programs were sponsored by the local school districts, Montana, Department of Public Instruction, Bureau of Indian Affairs, tribal agencies, and the Montana University System. The following were some of the objectives of the programs: improving the school's holding power; developing better home-school relationships; identifying those students with special aptitudes, interests, and needs; establishing an effective counseling program which would promote greater self-understanding and more realistic educational and career planning of Indian students; and providing Indian families with general education in the basic skill areas. Included in the document are opinions and ideas of participants of an Indian Education Conference conducted by the Department of Instruction of Montana. (EL)
