Phoenix Symposium on Indian Adult Basic Education: Part 1. February 18-20, 1971.
Oregon Coll. of Education, Monmouth. Faculty for Adult Basic Education.
The symposium proceedings contain two papers, remarks following the presentations, the symposium schedule, and a list of participants. Two papers were not included because the taping equipment failed to function properly. The first paper, by Ronald L. Chatham, describes the role of the U. S. Office of Education concerning Adult Basic Education (ABE). He commented on the Special Experimental Demonstration Projects in Adult Education and Teacher Training Projects in Adult Education and stressed the importance of cooperation between the Arizona State Department of Education and the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) in selecting institute participants. Three of 22 institutes are targeted specifically for the American Indian. Administrative problems in assigning participant status were considered in the discussion portion. The Role of the BIA Concerning ABE, was presented by Ed Lentz. He viewed the adult educator as an advocate for Indian interests, in the BIA and in other government agencies as well. He considered the necessary program foci to be ABE and high school equivalency programs (GED) and defended this choice in the discussion segment of the program. Frankie Paul offered supportive comments. Discussion of the final paper, The Role of the Tribal Administration Concerning ABE, is included. (AG)
