Indian Education; State of Idaho Johnson-O'Malley Program. Annual Report, 1972-73.
Idaho State Dept. of Education, Boise.
The State of Idaho submitted this 1972-73 annual report to the Bureau of Indian Affairs in compliance with Federal regulations governing Johnson-O'Malley (JOM) funding. There has been a drastic decrease in the use of JOM funds for basic school support due to P.L. 874 and local funds provided for Indian education. District administrators, working with the JOM Parent Advisory Committees, have provided special programs and activities designed to benefit the Indian children. Ongoing JOM programs included summer workshops for teachers and aides, kindergartens, summer tours, and other activities designed to solve problems generally peculiar to Indian children. Problems faced by trustees and administrators in school districts educating Indian children fell generally within the categories of: parental permissiveness; direction; communication breakdown; student attitude, behavior, attendance, and self-image; responsibility and function of trustees, administrators, and faculty; and other home-school-community related problems. Some suggested goals to inhance the present programs were the continuation and expansion of financial aid for summer workshops, provision of funds for inservice training, development of "on reservation" programs for parents and children to explain the public school operation and parental responsibility, etc. The majority of the document is made up of statistical tables and charts for State and JOM financial assistance, attendance, transportation, enrollment, school lunches, and tax levies.
