The Parochial Education of Menominee Indian Children: A Study of One School.
Sherarts, I. Karon; And Others
During May 1969 fieldwork for the National Study of American Indian Education was conducted at a Catholic school in Menominee County, Wisconsin. Data were collected by draw-a-man, student questionnaires, semantic differential, achievement test data, and interviews for 78 Menominee Indian students (55% female; 44% male). This report discussed interview data for the third through eighth grades. Student attitudes toward formal education, parental commitment o formal education, tribal language and culture, teachers, and peers were investigated. Researchers found that 70% of the students had a positive attitude about their parochial school; religion was especially enjoyed by 11%. Students recommended that the school could be improved by curriculum change (20%); teaching Menominee culture (3%); and building repair (10%). (KM)
