Indian Education in Wisconsin Under State Contract, Johnson-O'Malley Program, 1969-70, Twenty-Third Annual Report.
Kingston, A. W.; Embertson, E. N.
Johnson-O'Malley-funded projects in Wisconsin schools are described in this 1969-70 annual report on Indian education. Objectives of the Johnson-O'Malley Program are (1) to secure for Indian children the educational opportunities and learning environment necessary to fulfill their educational needs; (2) to promote understanding and improve relationships between the school, home, and community; (3) to cooperate in developing and supporting in-service training for teachers of Indian children; and (4) to provide financial assistance to local school districts for implementation of programs, services, and activities jointly planned and mutually approved by the school and Indian community. Current trends indicate an increased local awareness of the need for improved educational practices and programs in Indian education and a significant increase of direct involvement by the Indian community in school affairs. Statistics on financial support, enrollment, attendance, and scholarships for Indian students are presented in tabular form. In-service training programs held during the year are discussed. (JH)
