The Status of Native Hawaiian Education.
Bell, Bella Zi
This review of the educational status of native Hawaiian students suggests the need for special programs that: (1) promote self-esteem and appreciation of multiculturalism while improving cognitive skills; and (2) encourage parent participation and the involvement of community leaders as role models. The effects of Federal programs (such as those administered under Title I, the Comprehensive Mathematics Project, and the Right to Read program) and the impact of State compensatory programs are discussed. Also discussed are financial assistance alternatives, the educational needs of Hawaiian students as summarized in the 1979 Native Hawaiian Education Bill, adult education and special education training programs for teachers, the objectives of the Advisory Council on Native Hawaiian Education, and economic benefits of these programs to society.
