Development of Vocational Education Programs for American Indians. Final Report.
Edington, Everett D.
As a final report of an institute involving 58 participants (including 15 Indians), this document provides a summary of workshop proceedings, along with conclusions and recommendations of the institute. In addition, an evaluation of the institute is divided into 2 phases: (1) the phase wherein pre- and post-tests were administered to participants to determine if their attitudes regarding Indian values could be changed as a result of the workshop and (2) the phase wherein a follow-up interview 6 months following the institute was conducted with 11 of the participants to evaluate the workshop and to determine any effect which the institute had on programs in vocational education for Indians. Conclusions relating to the pre- and post-tests on Indian values as perceived by participants are presented, along with tables of data on each of the 10 Indian values examined. Conclusions regarding the participant follow-up are also given in terms of the 12 specific recommendations made at the institute--with the general consensus among the 11 participants being that the workshop was a success and that, as a result, a number of programs of a different nature had been initiated to serve better the occupational education needs of American Indians. Proceedings of the institute are reported in full in a related document, ED 031 614. (EL/GC)
