Recommendations for Language Policy in Indian Education.
Modiano, Nancy; And Others
The present recommendations are addressed to the Bureau of Indian Affairs and to tribal and community groups, educators, legislators, administrators and policy-makers everywhere who are interested in and concerned with the problems of Indian education. Ten major recommendations and several ancillary recommendations are put forward. They concern such issues as community control of Indian education; tribal decisions about the implementation of language policies, language at home, instruction of the ancestral language; preparation and evaluation of instructional materials, selection of teachers, resource centers, the role of the BIA; and the qualifications and preparation of teachers, administrators, and supervisors.
