Training Project to Assist in the Development of a More Positive Leadership Role for tribal Education Committees in the Development and Administration of Reservation Adult Basic Education Programs: Final Report.
Idaho State Univ., Pocatello. Coll. of Education.
The project was aimed at providing training and consultation to Tribal Education members and reservation adult education personnel so that reservation adult education (AE) programs could be more responsive to local needs. Primary project objectives were established to promote active involvement of the Tribal Education Committee, Tribal Council, and Indian people in setting up responsive AE program objectives in the six participating reservations in Washington, Oregon, Montana, Idaho, and Wyoming. Participant selection procedures are outlined, the roles of project personnel described, and the project management and activity schedule (July 6, 1972-June 2, 1973) are briefly reviewed. A summary and analysis of progress in fulfilling objectives for their individual AE programs is presented from each of the six participating reservations. Both internal and external evaluations of the project concluded that progress was made toward achieving the objectives: interpreting basic educational needs, developing a leadership that was more assertive and aware of services available to them, opening communications between tribal leaders, revitalizing tribal education committees, and finally, establishing confidence in adult education among Indian education leaders. The appendix offers a list of participating agencies, the selection model, evaluation forms, the activities plan, summaries of objectives, and a list of project personnel. (MW)
