So That All Indian Children Will Have Equal Educational Opportunity, Volume 2. USOE/BIA Study of the Impact of Federal Funds on Local Education Agencies Enrolling Indian Children.
ACKCO, Inc., Boulder, CO.
Volume 2 of a 3-volume report presents the major findings and discussions of ACKCO, Inc.'s legislative review and empirical research of the Impact-Aid Program, Johnson-O'Malley (JOM) Program, Indian Education Act, and Elementary and Secondary Education Act Title I. The empirical findings, which form the basis for most of the conclusions and recommendations, are from the fiscal, management, and program studies. Among these findings are: (1) Indian children are not receiving an adequate share of Title I funds to meet their needs; (2) the JOM Act had not been used as extensively as it could and should be due to the BIA's interpretation of the Act; (3) a great difference existed in the money appropriated for BIA education and the money actually spent per pupil in BIA schools; and (4) existing methods of school financing have neither assured that Indian children receive an equalized per pupil expenditure nor that they are provided an adequate basic education program. Recommendations are also given for Titles I and IV, P.L. 874, JOM, and the SEA. Results of the surveys of parent advisory committees and of business community attitudes toward the educational program are also included. A discussion is presented on the degree of success of these programs in meeting the Indian educational needs. (NQ)
