Indian Education: Steps to Progress in the 70's.
Bureau of Indian Affairs (Dept. of Interior), Washington, DC.
The booklet acquaints individuals with the Federal education programs serving American Indian students. Included are brief reports on some of the innovative approaches to education--i.e., individualization and open classrooms--in Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) schools. It delineates the broad parameters of the BIA's efforts in school operation, assistance to Indian college students, adult education, and cooperation with public schools enrolling Idian students. It gives information on the important movement of the past few years toward increased Indian participation in their education programs. It is felt that this booklet indicates the determination, on the part of the Indian people, the BIA, President Nixon, Congress, and people of the United States to keep these promises so that the 70's will be a period of educational growth and progress for American Indians.
