The Formal Education of Menominee Children at the Middle School Level: Students.
Sherarts, I. Karon; And Others
The perceptions of Middle School Menominee students about education and their school were presented in this report. Interviews were given to the American Indian students during April and May 1969. The sample consisted of 46 girls and 59 boys in grades 6 through 8. Students responded to questions on perception of parents' educational commitment, student attitudes toward formal education, Middle School life, and tribal language and culture. Major findings were that nearly half of the respondents felt Menominee language and culture courses should be taught, that nearly all students enjoyed several in-school peer relationships, that 7th grade students were most likely to view education as an important aspect of their future, and that 18 0/0 of the respondents felt their parents were somewhat committed to the value of formal education. Aspects students liked and disliked, and selected recommendations for change made by Menominee students were included, along with a copy of the student handbook. (PS)
