Teach Indian Students to Succeed.
Sando, Joe S.
The project, Pueblo Indian Education Talent Search Project, identifies problems related to Indian success in colleges. These problems, listed in order, are (1) poor communications (speaking, hearing, and writing English); (2) improper study habits in the first years; (3) lack of orientation to college life; and (4) the minority complex of the invisible minority ethnic group. It is suggested that a community college would be more advantageous for the Indian student than a large university since the emphasis in the smaller school is on meeting the needs of the students and not on research. It is also noted that the heavy emphasis on counseling and guidance provided at the community college is desirable for the Indian student, especially if a counselor with an Indian background can be hired.
