Management Decisions in Indian Education. Audio/Visual Scripts for a Seven Program Series on School Management Options. Research and Evaluation Report Series No. 32.
Streiff, Paul R.
Designed to promote informed decision making among Indian people whose children are currently attending a school operated by the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA), this script for a seven-part program is made up of filmstrips and recordings which both ask questions and provide information. Program 1 is an introduction/orientation program centered around the fact that by June 30, 1975 at least one-fourth or 50 of the BIA schools "will operate under the management system chosen by those served by the school." Program 2 is concerned with needs assessment--evaluation of: educational goals of students and community; curriculum; activities outside the classroom; and school administration. Programs 3-6 define four known school management options--(1) the Federal School; (2) the Public School; (3) the Tribal-Private or Contract School (legally authorized by written contract between the BIA and a tribally authorized group); and (4) the Combination School (a combination of the legal and financial aspects of Public, Federal, and Tribal-Private Schools). A fifth option is described as any new school program that has not yet been tried. Entitled "Another Look: It's Your Move", program 7 reiterates the options presented in programs 3-6 and emphasizes the necessity for informed decision making on the part of parents. (JC)
