Indian Education in Saskatchewan. A Report by the Federation of Saskatchewan Indians, Volume I.
Sikand, Jack, Comp.
The study was undertaken by the Educational Task Force established during the Saskatchewan Chiefs' Conference, March 1970. The Indians, representing 67 Bands, expressed their concern about the apathy of Indian children to school programs, dropouts, and the near absence of Indian students in universities. Another concern was the Canadian government policy in which government agencies were gradually restructuring the educational system so that Indian parents lost control they had over schools. This volume deals with 2 of 9 research topics. They are the legal rights of Indian people in education and the educational decision making process. Legal rights in education are concerned with those matters to which the law gives cognizance and which usually arise from contract, legislation, or common law--e.g., the Winnipeg treaty. The decision making process study is divided into 8 major tasks: (1) finance, (2) personnel, (3) in-school programs, (4) special programs, (5) special services, (6) employment and relocation services, (7) educational assistance, and (8) school agreement. The problem investigated was: what is the current decision making process in Indian education? Who makes what decision, how, and in consultation, with whom? The final part summarizes the context, such as the decision making process in Indian Affairs. (FF)
