Contained in this paper are the 6 steps that the U.S. Office of Education (OE) has taken, or will be taking, to achieve the impact called for by OE's 1971 Indian Education Task Force. First, OE has amended its policy to include a special focus on American Indian education within the agency. Second, OE is developing certain management procedures to increase the impact of its efforts. Third, the Commissioner of Education has asked the Deputy Commissioner for School Systems to set up a special monitoring plan and schedule for reviews of Title I projects (both Bureau of Indian Affairs [BIA] and non-BIA) serving Indian children. Fourth, OE is studying several alternatives to obtain the best possible guidance from Indian educators and representatives. Fifth, OE is now taking preliminary steps in the development of a policy on the issue of local control in off-reservation settings. Sixth, OE will work with urban school districts and the existing urban Indian centers to provide technical assistance and improved educational services for urban Indian children. (LS)
