Indians and Their Education in Minneapolis and St. Paul. The National Study of American Indian Education, Series II, No. 5, Final Report.
Harkins, Arthur M.; And Others
Problems of American Indians living in Minneapolis and St. Paul, Minnesota, are discussed in the series of reports presented in this document. Information gathered by questionnaire forms the basis for the reports on junior high school Indian students, elementary school Indian students, teachers of elementary and junior high school Indian students, and attitudes of Indian parents and influential persons toward formal education. An examination of the educational portions of the 1968-69 Urban Indian Hearings held by the National Council on Indian Opportunity is also presented. Reported conclusions relating to the Indians in the metropolitan area are that there appears to be considerable need for (1) education for newly-arriving Indians; (2) vocational training for high school students; (3) job training for those of high school age; (4) college education for those who qualify; (5) home economics training for housewives; and (6) education as to metropolitan agencies, services, and resources. Recommendations based on these conclusions are presented. Related documents are ED 042 214, ED 040 798, and ED 045 275. (PS)
