ACKCO, Inc., Boulder, CO.
The House Committee on Appropriations requested the U.S. Office of Education (USOE) and the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) to review the: Impact-Aid Program, Johnson-O'Malley Program, Indian Education Act, and Elementary and Secondary Education Act Title I. ACKCO, Inc. a private Indian-owned professional service firm, was contracted to examine these major educational programs which provides funds for the education of American Indian children in public schools and to recommend changes so that all Indian children will have an equal educational opportunity. The programs were viewed from four different perspectives: (1) legislative--history, intent, and implementation; (2) management--capabilities of the respective agencies handling these programs; (3) fiscal--compliance with rules and regulations, accounting procedures, and relationships of Federal, State, and local funding sources; and (4) the program--attitudes of parent advisory council members, administrators, and teachers toward program success, emphasis, and relevance. The final report is contained in 3 volumes. Volume 1 covers: (1) the study's background, purpose, organization, and procedures; (2) the basic issues in education with respect to educational effectiveness, community participation, school finance, and management in education; and (3) the past, present, and future of Indian education.
