Indian Education in Saskatchewan. A Report by the Federation of Saskatchewan Indians, Volume II.
Sikand, Jack, Comp.
The study was undertaken by the Educational Task Force established by 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 that of the Canadian Government restructuring the educational system which would cause the Indians to lose the control they had of the schools. This volume is concerned with 3 of 9 research topics: (1) the counselor and the Indian student qualifications, duties, and problems; (2) the effectiveness of Indian education in Saskatchewan; and (3) a cost analysis of Indian education in Saskatchewan. The findings of the first topic, presented in tables and graphs, cover such things as the positions of counselors, (i.e., guidance and vocational) and the number of counselors in those positions. In the second topic the hypothesis to be tested for the cost-benefit analysis is that additional years of schooling will increase the effective earning ability of the individual. The last study was to provide some guidelines for comparing the cost of educating Indian students in Saskatchewan by constructing schools on some selected reservations to the present cost of educating these students in several off-reserve schools.
