Guidelines for Teaching Concepts of Fairness, Justice and Democracy in BIA and Tribal-Contract Schools. A curriculum Bulletin.
Bureau of Indian Affairs (Dept. of Interior), Albuquerque, NM.
Purpose of this bulletin is to inform teachers and other school staff about new requirements, effective in 1974-75, for all Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) and tribal-contract schools to develop curriculum units relating to citizenship training and/or student rights and responsibilities in all grades K through post-secondary. Intended primarily for use by classroom teachers, these curriculum requirements are closely related to new administrative policies to assure: (1) due process for all students accused of serious infractions and (2) student participation in rule-making relating to student rights and responsibilities. To provide perspective, the historical background of the new BIA policies is summarized. This background is shown to be related to the current nationwide movement to improve the teaching of U.S. Government and the underlying concepts of fairness, justice, and democracy. Two case studies are given to offer additional suggestions, worked out as specific examples. (Author/NQ)
