The pamphlet explains the Indian Education Act of 1972 as a congressional declaration of policy in recognition of the special educational needs of Indian students in the United States and answers questions concerned with the functions and results of the declaration. The topic "Who is served?" identifies the American Indian and Alaska Native. Background on the act and its intended functions provides information on compensatory education, library resources, financial aids, and other special programs for Indians and explains the funding for Indian educational programs and projects. A question on the functions of the Office of Indian Education discusses the administrative responsibilities of the organization and its divisions. Lists of accomplishments of the act focus on impacts of the legislation, and descriptions of funded programs discuss some of the grants which have been provided. Two tables show numbers of grants awarded under the act up to 1980, and the funding history from fiscal year 1973 to fiscal year 1980. (JD)
