A Study of Parental Attitudes and Values Towards Education on the Navajo and Hopi Reservations. Part I, A Summary of the Research Literature.
Biglin, J. E.; And Others
Purposes of this study were to determine what Navajo and Hopi parents desire of public education on the reservations, to identify significant values of the parents, and to modify and strengthen the school program in a manner consistent with the research findings. Part I, the first of an 8-volume report that is divided into 3 parts, deals with significant research and literature previously done on parental attitudes and values toward education on the Navajo and Hopi reservations. Part I was compiled to provide background information for this study, to serve as a summary to those working in Indian education, and to provide a guide to research literature for those desiring more in-depth information in this area. The document takes the form of a bibliography containing annotations, summaries, or excerpts with each of the approximately 80 citations; the works cited can be obtained from the Northern Arizona University Library, the Museum of Northern Arizona Library, or the Flagstaff Public Library, Flagstaff, Arizona (call numbers are provided with most citations).
