Perspective on Manpower Planning.
Orr, Paul G.
Among the philosophical premises which should undergird manpower planning and training for American Indian elementary and secondary education are: (1) opportunity to alleviate educational disadvantage; (2) realization that prior attempts to design programs for Indians have been fragmented or unworkable; (3) realization of the right to determine one's own destiny based on knowledge of and access to alternatives; (4) realization of man's increasing interdependence and the necessity for higher levels of tolerance; (5) the necessity for opportunities to dramatically increase Indian personnel competencies in leadership positions at all levels; (6) the necessity for a massive manpower development program for people working with Indian children; (7) development of programs for Indian people at institutions which have the capability of providing innovations for specific Indian needs. Indian education should include: (1) schools which provide cultural pride, extensive counseling, career education, behavioral models of both interculturalism and pride in heritage, and community based education; (2) teacher preparation programs emphasizing skills in development of instructional objectives, indepth cultural studies, individualized programs, and utilization of community resources; and (3) research and training programs for non-school personnel.
