Evaluation of White Shield School, Roseglen, North Dakota. Part A: Evaluation Report. Research and Evaluation Report Series No. 30-A.
Matsushige, Susan, Comp.
In response to a request from concerned Indian members of the community of Roseglen, North Dakota, an evaluation team visited White Shield School (an elementary/secondary school of 303 students, 50 percent Indian) on May 13-17, 1974 to survey: identification and classification of goals, objectives, and purposes; distinguishing between perceptions of administrators, faculty, students, community, tribal leaders, and parents; school facilities; operational costs, particularly per student cost; student personnel (via personal records and interviews); educational goals (vs. actual program), establishing priorities, and recommending programs in terms of long range educational plans. Findings emphasized a high rate of failure and underachievement among Indian students; minimal community school interaction (due to poor administration, which minimized informational communication); lack of written education, parent/school, administrative, or personnel policies; lack of available data on curriculum policy; and a recognizable tax break in favor of non-Indian constituencies. The cooperative agreement between the Bureau of Indian Affairs, and the school district was found to be "vague" and "outmoded,...obviously not drawn up by a lawyer." (JC)
