Bureau of Indian Affairs (Dept. of Interior), Washington, DC.
Statistics concerning Indian education are published annually by the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) and are made available following the close of the school term which the statistics cover. In this annual report for 1970, after a brief historical account of the BIA role in Indian education, 28 pages of statistics are given on enrollment and average daily attendance in boarding, day, and hospital schools; completions and graduates by area; enrollment by degree of Indian blood and by tribe; school construction; Federal projects which benefited Indian children; and the 1970 summer program. A fact sheet on schools operated by the BIA is also provided. As pointed out in the document, the BIA had direct responsibility for 56,238 Indian children enrolled in Federal schools and housed in Federal dormitories and had partial financial responsibility for approximately two-thirds of those enrolled in public schools during 1970. Statistics show that there were 185,587 Indian students 5 to 18 years of age enrolled in Federal, private, and mission schools during 1970. (EL)
