Woods, Richard G.; Harkins, Arthur M.
A large amount of discussion during the hearings of the National Council on Indian Opportunity during its 1968-69 visits to 5 major cities was concerned with education. This report organizes the urban Indian concerns and characteristics about education evidenced during the hearings. Much is included in the way of direct quotations from Indian witnesses. Discussed in the document are areas of concern in Indian education, such as the high dropout rate, counseling and guidance, inadequacy of resources, teachers of Indian children, Indian involvement in education, and the language problem. Action recommendations for Indian education presented during the hearings are reproduced in full in the appendix to this report. (JH)
