Morning Star Cycle Two (1977-1979): Evaluation.
Sloan, L. V.
Evaluation of cycle two of the (1977-1979) Morning Star program (a 2-year Native teacher education program at the Blue Quills Native Education Centre leading to a Bachelor of Education degree from the University of Alberta) used a systems model to collect data on 24 variables for the 33 participating students, the academic program, and first and second year program outputs. Based on program performance, 27 students (82%) were admitted to the University of Alberta after 1 year; 14 of the 24 students (58%) who completed the 2-year program were continuing their university education; and only 5 participants (21%) obtained a Conditional Teaching Certificate after 2 years. Success rates were at least 20% better for students who were female, under 21 or over 25 years of age, either single or married (as opposed to widowed, divorced, or in a common-law relationship), had no dependents or many (more than two) dependents, could read and write only English (as opposed to English and Cree), had previously been enrolled in some post-secondary training program, and had been employed in non-education jobs for 1 year or less.
