A Summary Report on Menominee Indian Education: 1968-1970.
Harkins, Arthur M.; And Others
Since July 1970 the Training Center for Community Programs (University of Minnesota) has produced 11 interim reports on Menominee education in Wisconsin. This summary is the 12th and final report on this American Indian tribe's progress since Federal trusteeship was terminated in 1965. The Menominees, now citizens of Wisconsin, still have more than cultural ties binding them and setting them apart. They have their own county and government; are stockholders in Menominee Enterprises, a tribally-owned corporation; and have their own special set of economic and social problems. The summary covers the Parents and Students Committee for Better Education's solutions for problems in Joint District Number Eight; background of that district and its Title III (Elementary and Secondary Education Act) project; Indian parents; and elementary, middle, and high school student and teacher attitudes. Ten major problems are listed, such as the credibility gap, institutional overload, and an insensitivity to changing patterns of survival behavior. (FF)
