Oversight Hearings on Indian Education. Hearings before the Subcommittee on Elementary, Secondary, and Vocational Education of the Committee on Education and Labor. House of Representatives, Ninety-Eighth Congress, First Session (June 21 and 24, 1983).
Congress of the U.S., Washington, DC. House Committee on Education and Labor.
The text of the general oversight hearings on the Indian Education Act contains letters, statements, and supplementary materials from representatives of Indian groups and schools. Prepared statements by the National Congress of American Indians and individuals from schools serving Indian students praise the Title IV program and protest the Administration's proposed cutbacks to Title IV and the Office of Indian Education. Remarks by Representative Dale E. Kildee, Acting Chairman of the Subcommittee, indicate support for the idea that the federal government's trust responsibility includes supporting education for Indian tribes. Statements from several speakers point out the importance of Title IV's insistence on active parent participation and the need in Indian education for parents to be recognized as integral factors in their children's lives. Statistics on the lives of Indians relocated to the San Francisco area are presented. Text of the second day of hearings covers the impact aid program and assistance it provides to public school districts on Indian reservations. Testimony from representatives of federal impact school districts and organizations calls for continuing federal impact aid at present levels or better. (MH)
