Evaluation Report of the Center for the Study of Migrant and Indian Education, Toppenish, Washington.
Streiff, Paul R.
The effectiveness (in terms of educational services for American Indians received for dollars spent) of Johnson O'Malley (JOM) funding for the Center for the Study of Migrant and Indian Children was evaluated. The approach to the evaluation of the Center was based on the working definition used by the Division of Evaluation and Program Review of the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) Office of Education Programs, which includes (1) determining the decision areas of concern, (2) selecting, collecting, and analyzing information needed in making those decisions, and (3) reporting that information to the appropriate decision-makers so that they may decide among alternative courses of action. The information categories examined were background, legalities and Indian involvement, objectives, budget and finance, and Center components. Conclusions and recommendations included the following: (1) the Center's activities to date are worthwhile and defensible under JOM funding, and JOM funding should be continued in FY 1974; (2) since possibly the combining of migrants and Indians is not helpful, but instead results in difficulties with both groups, efforts should be made to clarify the population to be served; (3) the role of the Center and the problems it is attempting to resolve should be better defined; and (4) the role of and services offered by Central Washington State College should be clarified. Included in the appendixes are documents pertaining to the history of the Center. (FF)
