Some Predictions for Reservation Education.
Foster, Carl G.; And Others
Three position papers present future implications for educators concerning adherence to P.L. 95-561. "Reservation Education: A Brief Prediction" encourages the active incorporation of the law's certification components in order to augment administrative tenure and promote worth. Teachers are urged to willingly comply with new Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) requirements in order to protect their own security, as well as in an effort to strengthen reservation educational systems. In "Educator Certification and 561: Another Prediction," failure to upgrade educator academic programming is seen as a possible major variable in the problems facing reservation education today, and it is proposed that the new certification law must be adhered to within the predetermined timeline by educators who wish to crystalize their present-future professional direction. "Bureau Contracting: Can It Be Successful" draws attention to the schools' operating budgets (based on average student enrollment) and the problems which are inherent in adopted Bureau contracting procedures. Because enrollment traditionally decreases during the school year, the adjustment of monies can cause possible termination of personnel in order to keep the budget in alignment, therefore redress is advised to promote cohesion between the intent of P.L. 95-561 and the Bureau.
