The Education of Indian Children and Youth. National Study of American Indian Education, Series 4, No. 6, Summary Report and Recommendations.
Havighurst, Robert J.
As a part of the Final Report of the National Study of American Indian Education, this document contains the summary report and recommendations regarding education of Indian children and youth. The document summarizes results of field research made in 30 Indian communities and contains recommendations for action to improve the education of Indians. The recommendations and the text of the summary, as noted, are mainly the work of the director of the study, Professor Havighurst. An overriding theme throughout the study is that there needs to be recognition of Indian authority and responsibility for the education of Indian children and youth. It is believed that the time has come to make this a major goal in the policies and practices of the Federal Government and of the state governments. In conclusion, the document provides information on sample communities and school systems included in the study, a reference list, and the availability and purchasing arrangements for papers constituting the Final Report.
