Young Native Americans and Their Families: Educational Needs Assessment and Recommendations. Final Report.
Bank Street Coll. of Education, New York, NY. Div. of Research.
This report presents findings and recommendations based on a detailed assessment of the educational needs of young Native American children and their families. The project had three major objectives: (1) to conduct an assessment of the educational needs of Native American children (prenatal to age 8) and their families; (2) to describe and report on the types of programs currently available to these children and their families; and (3) on the basis of the assessment of needs, and in the context of programs available, to draw conclusions and make specific recommendations for programs which will have the maximum potential for meeting the identified developmental and educational needs. Discussed are: economic conditions; health and nutrition; social problems and issues; emotional problems and mental health issues; early development and education; school learning and intellectual development; education for Indian and Eskimo children, bilingual programs; and program recommendations. Appendices include: an evaluation of two parent-child development programs, detailed cost estimates and interview guides and data sheets for classroom and school visits. (SB)
