Indian Education Confronts the Seventies. Five Volumes; Volume II: Theoretical Considerations in Indian Education.
Deloria, Vine, Jr., Ed.
Presenting six position papers, this publication is the second in a series of five volumes on American Indian education. Papers are titled as follows: (1) "The Theory of Indian Controlled Schools" (Indian control of education is perceived as the basis for a cultural renewal process in which the problems of contemporary identity and purpose are resolved); (2) "A Theory of Vocational-Technical Career Education" (vocational training models are considered in terms of the ongoing developments in non-Indian America and the progressive developments in Indian communities); (3) "Testing, Evaluation, and the Indian Education Act of 1972" (testing criteria, particularly the criterion-referenced test, are proposed for use in Indian education); (4) "Early Childhood Education Program Models" (drawing upon a longitudinal study of the "Follow Through" program, numerous models of early childhood education are considered); (5) "A New Curriculum Design for Native American Schools" (consideration is given to a curriculum designed to emphasize tribal history, culture, traditions, and the immediate community environment); (6) "Perspective on Manpower Planning" (consideration is given to a philosophy of educational manpower planning that emphasizes innovative programs designed by Indian communities to promote both interculturalism and pride in heritage).
