Research and Development Needs and Priorities for the Education of American Indians. Final Report.
Bass, Willard P.
The rationale of this study was that a planned, systematic approach was necessary to identify major problems in educating American Indians, to analyze the problems, to determine the evidence needed for solutions, and to indicate research and developmental needs and priorities. Thus, this study consisted of 3 major phases: (1) identification of 20 or 25 priority problems, (2) development of position papers by scholars who were particularly knowledgeable about the problems, and (3) analysis of the position papers for recommendations in terms of research and developmental needs. It was expected that the project would provide valuable information to those individuals and agencies interested in research in Indian education and that the findings would have some implication for the allocation of research funds. In the document, research and developmental recommendations from 20 of the selected position papers are reviewed and analyzed. (LS)
